“I hate the baby! I wish he never was born. Send him back.”
As a parenting coach, I see SO MANY PARENTS who are struggling after the birth of their second child. Caring for a new baby and an older child combined with the exhaustion of the early days is hard enough. When your older child suddenly CAN NOT COPE you may feel like you’ve hit a wall. They are having toilet accidents and major meltdowns, hitting the baby (or biting everyone!) and life feels unbearable. To top it off, you are missing that sweet child you seem to have lost.
It doesn’t have to be this way! You can help your older child adjust to the new baby and lay the foundation for a great sibling relationship.
If you are you adding to your family or have you recently had a second (or more!) child, this workshop is for you.
Learn how to manage this difficult transition BEFORE things fall apart. We will discuss how to best prepare your child for his or her new sibling, how to manage the transition, and how to handle jealousy and aggression should they become an issue. Bonus: Tips for how to manage the challenges of caring for a baby and a small child at the same time!!
