  • I'm am going through the same thing my son is 3 and my daughter is 1. He likes to take stuff away from her and hit her. So he's always in the corner. I think you should let him help with his brother. My son helps me get the diaper or wipes and helps pick out her outfit. Give him lots of prase when he does something good like you are being very good with you brother or what a big boy. Hope I helped good luck.

  • It sounds like it. This is a very tough adjustment for all involved. My granddaughters just went thru this stage. You have to have lots of patience and make sure you keep him as involved with the baby stuff as you can. He needs to feel like he is an active participant in taking care of his baby brother. Talk to him, tell him stories about what it will be like when his brother is older. Just have patience and remain calm. Don't make him feel bad.. he doesn't really no any better.
