Teen, Toddler & Infant? - Page 2

post #21 of 25
From the other side: it'll be ok!
There was a time when I had a 17 yo., a 7 yo., two 2 yo. (one with SN) and a newborn that I thought I might have been crazy.
But now, with a 21 yo., 11 yo., two 6 yo. (one with severe SN), a 4 yo. and a newborn, it all went fine! The 17 yo. was a great help when she wanted too, and still is.
Now too, the bigger kiddos love their younger siblings and like to play with them and help out a lot of the times.

I have 11ds, 6dd, 4dd, and 10 mo dd.

Life is crazy. Unfortunately, no advice, just hugs. We'll get through it...somehow..

I definitely echo the difficult mix of emotional preteen, precocious 5, and infant. we homeschool, so most days are painfully LONG.

we try.

I have a 13 yr old dd and a 5 yr old ds. They got along famously until a few months ago when dd started feeling like he is spoiled "gets anything he wants" and she wants more attention from both her dad and I. So trying to do this has caused ds to act out in crazy ways to distract us and get attention back to his cute little body. I am really trying to give them both what they need but it is a bit sad to have her so irritated with him. I figure a year or two and it will balance out.
