Welcoming a New Sibling to the family – Episode 10 – Season 2 – The Enriching Environments Podcast

Joyous, magical, and calling for immense reserves of understanding and multitasking; in this Top Tip Tuesday Masterclass we discussed supporting the transition that takes place (for adults and older children) when there is a new addition to our household.

❤️ Validation of older children’s feelings of frustration and jealousy .

❤️ Cultivating deep respect between siblings through not forcing affection or acceptance in the early days and weeks.

❤️ Preparing the home so that baby can be included in all areas of the home life (not trying to ‘keep them apart’) from older siblings.

❤️ The changes we undergo when adapting from 1 to 2 children and our inner work in adapting to this change.
