Hello, dear mommies. I want to raise a relevant question for me. Our daughter does not want a brother or sister. We found out this recently and were very surprised.
A nephew is expected to appear in our family soon. Prior to this, our baby was the only child of all relatives. In connection with the upcoming event, we talk a lot about children. At first, our four-year-old daughter just listened, then began to excitedly ask if we would have a boy. We answered that it was with my aunt, and she calmed down.
One day, after another of her questions, we decided to find out how she would react to her brother. I do not need any homogeneous brother – my daughter declared with tears. The prospect of the appearance of her little sisters did not please her either. I will run from them on the walls, I will not be friends with them – she told us.
We tried to find out the reason for such fraternal love. The baby explained to us that the little brother could get sick and infect her, then everyone will have to be treated. More than anything intelligible, we did not succeed.
My husband and I have younger sisters. We told how we love them, how fun we played as a child, shared secrets and nursed. After all, kids are much better than dolls. We convinced that all the kids love the same way as the fingers on the handle. Our arguments did not seem convincing to the daughter and she did not change her decision.
Maybe time will help us?
My husband and I planned to have two children and wanted the age difference to be six to seven years old. We still have time before the second pregnancy, but the relationship of the daughter may not change. She will get used to being alone, will understand that it is so much more comfortable and all the forces and means are thrown at her.
