Scholastic Parent & Child;Jun-Aug2004, Vol. 11 Issue 6, p28
This article presents an argument regarding the development of jealousy in a child after the birth of its new sibling. The case of Zachary, a 4 year child was cited here. Zachary's disconcerting behavior is not unusual and probably won't last long. Working together, Zachary's teacher and parents can help him to adapt to the changes at home and enjoy school again. To help your child adjust, spend extra time playing with him. Let him take the lead; don't be alarmed if he plays out some of his aggressive feelings. INSET: Helping Children Get a Handle on Jealousy.
