When a woman is blessed to be a mother for the second time, she feels happy to complete her family in a more fulfilled way. Yet, she fears of not coping with the change.
There is also a constant guilt of doing injustice to the first-born. She may be scared that her lion’s share of love, attention, and focus could shift to the second child, which might make the elder sibling feel lost and deprived. The mother may feel too tired or exhausted to play and spend time with the older kid like she did before. This might also create distance between the two siblings.
Will that be the beginning of what people call sibling rivalry? Doesn’t that defeat the purpose of bringing the second child into the family?
But these are mere speculations of a mind filled with apprehension and panic. What may happen is the complete opposite. The older children may actually welcome the new addition, and start to love, care, and feel responsible for the younger sibling, cementing their beautiful relationship.
Don’t believe us? Then you got to look at the happy events that follow the arrival of the second child as captured by Capturing Joy Birth Services.
