We just had our 3rd child 11 days ago...a girl...and also have a 4 1/2 yr old daughter and 2 1/2 yr old son. Our oldest is really acting out...being defiant, disobeying, back talk, etc. I'm sure it has to do with her life being turned upside down from the day we left for the hospital, so I get that. But WHAT DO I DO ABOUT IT? She's not in school and I haven't been able to take them to play groups b/c they're both sick, so we've had a few outing to Gramma's house and Target but as for 'getting out' that's about all. But what do I do about the defiance, back talk? I'm adjusting also and constantly nursing and when they both get that way I am at a loss. I need this to stop soon!! I don't like the mommy I've become! TIA!
