He also sits in the swing, her bouncy chair. He shows love to her, but definately is showing regression ( I guess!) Do we discipline him, or ignore it? Assuming the behavior will resolve on its own?Answer Question

My girl was 5 years 2 months when my son was born. She tried to sit on his chair and swing like once. I made sure to emphasize how awesome it was that she was a big girl who did big girl things. I pointed out that she got to do certain things because she is so much older. She really responded well to that. It went on for months and months until she no longer felt threatened by the baby. Even now, they are 9 and 4 and I still talk to her about being the big sister, and what a great place she is in being the older one. She did get in trouble if she hurt her brother, but she loved the praise for being big that she seldom got in trouble.
