So my almost 4 year old son has been "bullying" my almost 1 year old son. The 4 year old will push, pinch, and various other strategies to hurt him. He will take all the toys the one year old is playing with and put them out of reach or try to use big toys to block the 1 year old in a corner. He will intentionally try to wake him up or scare him.
It has gotten to be really frustrating so I sat him down the other day to talk to him about it. He said he's mean because he doesn't like the baby. When I asked why, he said he just don't.
I guess it could be he wants more attention? But my 4 year old gets way more attention than my 1 year old already because he has a sensory processing disorder and just requires more attention. I feel guilty a lot of the time because I feel like the 1 year old doesn't get enough attention one-on-one time with me or Daddy.
It could be he's jealous of his brother? But I'm not sure of what? The 1 year old has less of everything.
Idk any tips on how to fix this? I want the boys to have a good relationship, and I really don't know where I went wrong, but I want to fix it.
