We have a problem. Our eldest GS nearly 5 is very jealous of our younger GS nearly 3. They do on rare occasions play well together.
The youngest can charm the birds of the trees and so does not get into much trouble but the eldest, who I admit at times can be challenging and have meltdowns, is regularly in trouble. He has just started school and seems to be thriving with no behavioural problems there.
At home big one can break little one's toys. He always wants identical or more than his brother. I should add that his younger bro has had health issues and often has to be admitted to hospital for a short while, so he does get quite a bit of extra attention.
When we are with big one on his own, he is a delight and we have no problem with him.
His parents are getting so warn down with his difficult behaviour.
So do you dear Gransnetters, can anyone give advice on books to read that might help ? They could afford to pay someone to come in an observe the family and give professional advice, but I am not sure we have got to that stage, as some weeks things are better than others.
I only had one son so haven't experienced this sort of behaviour before.
