It’s a Babywise Friendly Blog Network switch day! I’m over at The Journey of Parenthood with some ideas on how to encourage a love of science in young children. They are easy, relatively mess free ways to encourage inquisitive minds. Emily is here today helping me out with tips on how to prepare children for a new baby. Ben’s life is going to change in huge and wonderful ways when the twins come, and I want to do everything I can to help him out with this transition. Thanks, Emily, for the great tips!
Preparing Children for New Baby
As a parent a big reason many of us choose to have multiple children is because we want our children to have the bond that siblings create. However, once we actually become pregnant with that sibling…we start to worry. Will the older child be jealous of the new baby? Resent the new baby? Will I be able to give enough attention to them all? Is it fair to the older children to have to share me? Is it fair to the baby that I won’t be able to give them all my time and attention because I have an older child to care for too?
