  • (Do you talk like you type? Sorry not trying to be mean. Kids talk like their parents. My step sister talks REALLY fast so her daughters talk REALLY fast.) Maybe he is just acting out. Has anything changed in the house old? My 4 year old daughter is very emotional. Drives me crazy sometimes. Consistency is going to be the key. I don't know much about autism but have that checked.

  • My son is now 19 and he has a hearing loss too. So, I know what that's like. But he is my only child, so I haven't had to deal with siblings as a mom. I DO remember hating my little brother though, he was born when I was 4 1/2. In those days my grandma believed little kids should not be around babies, because we could hurt them, I wasn't even allowed to SEE him.
    I'm just saying, that it is VERY NORMAL for your ds to feel that way. His sister is invading his life, taking up his parents' time. She gets New stuff, she gets oohhed and aaahed over...
    Try as much as you can to do special stuff just with him. When she is napping, play with him. See if you can keep them a little more separated. If he doesn't have his own room, teach him to put his stuff away in places she can't get to. (Maybe a bin or toybox she can't open yet.)
    Then start teaching him to share, maybe using her stuff first. Good luck!
