Sometimes it's nice to get advice from experts with a lot of letter degrees behind their names, but other times, you just need to hear what another parent (with a M.O.M. behind her name) has done that has worked. You've got questions? These moms have answers.

Is jealousy normal between siblings with their mom?

2 answers
I have a large family that consist of me and my husband and our three kids: Nevan 6, Payton 3, and Chloe who's 5 months old. Now, Nevan gets along really well with little Chloe but he gets in a lot of fights with Payton. Especially when me and Payton are hanging out together. When he sees us together he goes to his room and doesn't speak to Payton all day, which hurts his feelings. My husband says it's because he's jealous. I was wondering if this happens a lot since I'm expecting another boy soon and does it pass? Or does this sibling rivalry continue?

Yes the jalousy is normal and will probably continue until they are adults/late teens my suggestion is to make sure you dedicate individual time with each child to reduce jealousy issues
yes it is normal and well maybe when they get older and understand more it will get better... Or maybe hes sentimental because your pregnant...!! that happened to my sister in law her daughter was really sentimental while she was expecting..!! She would get mad or cry or fight with other kids for no reason at all...!!
