Is your child jealous of your brother?

Psychologist Eda Gökduman said, endiş There is a fear that the throne is shaken with the arrival of a brother during childhood and that everything will not be the same again. In order to control this anxiety, parents and others need to make them feel that nothing has changed and that it is still special and important for them. ”

Jealousy of a child's brother can be described as a natural feeling. Every individual may want to be special, to be first, to be a priority, to be preferred, to be liked. Control of these emotions can sometimes be difficult for a person, even if they are siblings. Rather than seeing this feeling as a problem, it is to teach how to deal with this feeling and how to behave as a parent. In this jealousy, intense feelings of anger towards the brother are evident. It is manifested by being alone, introverted, constant anger and intense conflicts with the idea that he is more in the foreground, he is loved more, everything he wants is done, he is thrown into second plan, he is unfair and he is no longer making love.

In childhood, the throne is shaken by the arrival of the brother and the worry is that everything will not be the same anymore. In order to be able to control this anxiety, parents and other people should make them feel that nothing has changed and that it is still special and important for them with their behaviors and speeches. Feeling this, the child will relax and be able to control all feelings of hostility towards his brother.

This does not apply to a child before 3 years of age. Because this age child does not yet have sufficient mental skills and behavioral control to get this information.
