Helping BC post placement of AS
We are 3 weeks into the placement of our 4year old AS. Our BS is 9, the excitement of a little brother has turned to reality and we are looking for ways to help him.
Our AS has a few tantrums, not daily but of course these come as a surprise to a 9 year old who has been an only child until now. he finds this upsetting and it can make him angry towards AC.
We are ensuring 1-1 time for BC and trying to ensure we have lots of calm time for all. We know it will settle down and have confidence they can bond with time.
I wondered if others have had the same experience and have any words of wisdom to share.
Also any suggestions for books that could help BC to talk about his feelings and to explain why we need to be understanding with AS ?
