As much as we’re always seeking knowledge when it comes to having a new baby—from birthing to the terrible twos to growth charts and behavior management—we often need help with our older children as well. When I was a child, I remember resenting my parents something awful when they brought home not one but two little sisters, two years apart. I was six when my middle sister was born and I did not
want siblings. I was perfectly happy being the only child and getting 100% of the attention. I don’t remember talking about it much with my parents or babysitters, except for voicing my own opposition.
