Unfortunately, many parents discount the feelings of their children before having a new baby. The process of obtaining a sibling is a confusing one, and talking to your little ones about it can be helpful.
You can start off by talking to your little one about all the things babies do – crying, sleeping, eating. It is also wise to tell your child about the wonderful times you had when he or she was just a baby, and to suggest ways your child can help when the new baby arrives. Fostering a positive relationship from day one is essential for a family to live in harmony.
