Preparing Your First Child for a Sibling

0   people commented
on this article

When people think about relationships among siblings, the first word that often springs to mind is "rivalry." To be honest, that conception isn't entirely wrong; siblings can wind up competing for their parents' attention. But it doesn't have to be that way — or only that way.

As a parent, you can set the tone for the way your children relate, not only to you, but to each other as well. With a little effort, you can foster relationships that are loving, supportive, and cooperative instead of competitive.

Part of the secret is to start building a positive relationship among your children before problems arise. In fact, you can even start setting the stage before your second child is born!
