A Note From Fred Rogers

For a firstborn child, the arrival of a baby brother or sister is almost sure to arouse mixed feelings. Along with all the excitement, suddently someone else is sharing the attention and love that the firstborn used to have all alone. When a child starts feeling unsure about his or her place in the family, that child sometimes reacts with outbursts of anger, baby talk, and other baby ways.

We can help our firstborns to accept a new baby by assuring them of their own special place in the family -- a place that no one else can ever take. We can assure them of our love by making special time for them alone with us and by encouraging them to talk about their feelings. And by helping our firstborns feel active and important in the care of the new baby, we can let them know how proud we are of the many ways they're growing.
