Helping Older Siblings Adjust to a New Baby

  Helping Older Siblings Adjust to a New Baby Having a child is one of, if not the most precious, magical and rewarding experiences we can experience in life. Yet for families that already have other children, the introduction of a new baby into the mix can have a significant impact on the family dynamics and relationships.
