my toddler son is two years old, one month ago I and my wife were blessed with the birth of our 2nd boy.
My old son seems to understand the situation and welcomed his kid bro at first. Recently, however, my wife raised concerns that he might be a little jealous of the little one.
What she observed were:
- he shows reluctance to visit his mother if my wife is with his kid bother;
- for once he made some unfriendly moves toward his brother, like pinching his legs - not to the extend of real harm, though.
- he was already little spoiled and now becoming more demanding for attentions, for example, he insists on more hugging and carrying in arms, which I urge my wife and relatives not to do, as he became very heavy now and I am afraid he would become less independent.
I thought my wife was over worried, nevertheless, to be fair, is her concern legitimate? And what should we do if it proves so?
