I've just had my third child, baby girl born on Dec. 27th. I have a 9 year old boy &13 year old girl. The past week or 2, I've noticed my boy getting a very bad attitude. He's constantly harassing his older sister, they fight way worse note then when they were small. I'm only 28 & I swear I'm gonna start popping out grey hairs pretty **** soon! Nothing I say or do helps, they don't care if the baby is asleep, even if I'm in my room feeding her they run to me like I'm "home free" and wake the baby up all the time.
Besides the fighting, my 9 year old boy is constantly talking back, starting to swear, whining all the time, refusing to do chores, expecting me to buy him everything, crying about things I don't have the power to change... I've noticed he's complaining of tiny aches sometimes (for attention) and other minor things like my arm is sore, my finger hurts. Throwing food, hitting... I can go on for hours.
I'm guessing this is the beginning of "middle cold syndrome". I googled it & I'm pretty sure that's what is starting, I don't know what to do. My husband is really starting to lose his patience. From what I've read the most important thing is to show lots of attention & love which I do. I read to him & lay with him every night, his dad makes video game time, we go watch him pay hockey, I hug & kiss him at least 3 times a day, I compliment him daily, I thank him for all his help with the new baby & always tell him he's such a good big brother.
I seriously don't know what else to do, I feel like I'm doing everything I can! Is it because he's a Leo? Lol! I'm stumped... He's acting out badly, very spoiled, very rotten... I need alllllll the advice I can get right now!
