  • Make sure they are getting the one on one time they need with your SO and you. And they are getting praised when they do things right. They will be able to share more and have do cooperative play when they are a little older. A lot of the hostility between them might be because of needing more attention and all of the changes with the new baby. GL

  • Well, that is a different situation! There is a lot of competition now, maybe, for that child's attention. Or they feel like their "space" has been invaded and they now have to share with a third child. They are under a lot of new pressure with a 7 year old in the home.

  • I noticed when my kids couldn't find something to play on their own they would act up this way. I would take them outside to get fresh air at the park and possibly find kids their own age to play on the monkey bars, or something of that sort.
