Me, I don't really get jealous often. If I do, I usually tell the person nicely (in a joking way) and move on. I figure it is a fact of life that I will want what someone else has. Thankfully, nothing has made me jealous on a long-term basis.
With the kids, I have not had a lot of it to deal with. But I am wondering how I will handle it in the future. I would love to say I will be calm about it...but given I am not really a calm person, I am not sure yet. I do envision there will be plenty of jealousy to come though.
I have a ton of things *I* am jealous of, but I just whine to myself and move on.
T gets jealous often and when he does we know we need to re-work things around here as it's always for the same reason: Hubby or I spending more time with C & B, and not enough with T.
I seem to forget (more often than I care to admit..) that during the week while T is at school I do things with the other two. But when T gets home, other than homework, dinner table discussions, and story time (with all 3) is just not enough for him. So I try to do an activity with just him, or him and C, while the hubs cooks dinner with B.. Of course I slack a bit, then when I notice T acting out again I start doing it again..
