2 result(s) of what to do when a child asks for sibling
Tell your child “You have brothers and sisters” and then name his/her cousins or
“You can also play and share with your friends” or “Mumma and daddy are always
there to play with you." You can try and arrange playdates often for your child
so that they do not feel lonely on weekends. When your kids are a bit older, you
can give them your personal reasons for not having another child. After an age,
it is okay to let your child know about your choices as well.
Managing sibling insecurity
Every child needs full attention of a parent. So, pause and reflect on your parenting to make sure none of your children feel left out.
