I want them to have a really loving, kind sibling relationship and more importantly have a long term friendship from today through to adulthood, it is really important to me that they both get on.
Some of the best words of advice, I have heard and read are:
Planning- Always plan activities and outings.
Check list- Make sure even if I am going to be ten minutes late, use the check list. Have I got everything I need?
Love- Give both children equal love and affection, especially Isla, if she feels loved she won’t get jealous or spiteful.
Sensitivity- Let Isla help with Noah, involve her with bathing and nappy changes, helping to love, care and nurture him.
Calm- If I am happy and relaxed both Children are going to be calm, happy and relaxed.
Have you watched your children play together?
How do they interact?
How do you prevent them from fighting?
