  • He'll find a way to get over it. Kids are resiliant, but everyone accepts change differently. He may just be afraid of change. I think letting your son dictate whether or not you have a baby is setting him up to think that he's gonna always have a sayso in what you do with your life. This is a good opportunity to teach him that while you acknowledge and respect his feelings, you and your husband have decided that you want another baby. He will learn to cope with it, and may even learn to be happy about it. Let him know how big of a part he will be playing the baby's life and you'll all be okay.

  • He will get over it. Maybe sit down with him and ask him why he's so upset about having another little brother or sister.

  • If you have another baby, it won't be the same, that's a lie. There will be three children. It will go from two older children to a screaming, demanding baby in the house. I'm not sure what to tell you but if he's crying that he doesn't want a baby in the house why do you keep pursuing it?

  • Of course he will get over it once the baby is here he will be happy you shouldnt stop your self from having another child . he is a child and having more children is your choice not his. it will be easier to have another child your 2 other children are now able to do some thing's for themselves and all I know is that it will be okay I have 6sisters and 6brothers and I would know.

  • A 10 year old child shouldn't be involved in the baby planning process, why are you asking him?

  • He is a CHILD..he will get over it. If you allow THIS to prevent you from having another baby then I think you have more serious issues than a spoiled demanding child.
