now the problem is that he thinks that my 3 yr old is getting so much attention so hes starting to do everything my 3 yr old does- EVERYTHING! its getting to be really annoying! and if i even look like im talking or playing with the 3 yr old my 5 yr old jumps in and starts doing something to make my attention go on him- now ive already told him that his brother is getting special treatment because he just had surgery and i remind him of the special treatment he got when he went through surgery and hell say he knows and he understands but then the jealousy starts right back up- ive even been trying my best to give the 5 yr old a little extra attention but that seems to make it worse and ive tried ignoring him when he starts coppying his brothers actions and giving him attention when he does something unique but im at my wits end and ready to scream every time he starts up- i dont know wut to do- any ideas?
