I currently have three children but am planning to have a fourth. However my eldest daughter really does not want any more siblings. She has anger issues that we are just starting to get dealt with and a major trigger for her is her little siblings who pester her. I don't want to not have another child because she doesn't want one and I don't think I should, but I'm not sure how to deal with this. I don't want to make her mental health issues worse and I don't want her to not like the new child or my pregnancy. I want her to enjoy it.

For those who have large families, have your older children expressed a dislike of you having another? How did you handle it? How do you foster sibling love?
