Tantrum over sibling
How to mediate jealously issues between my 4 yr old daughter and my 2 year old son. She feels we pamper him too much, and sulks in the corner. We try our level best to give them equal time, but since I'm the only person at home, its hard to run in two directions at once. Everytime the younger one cries, the older one cries too. I know it is an attention seeking tactic, but could you please help me with how to manage this?

Sibling rivalry is quite common and natural too. Please remember your elder one is still a young child too. It helps if you involve the four year old in the caring of your younger one. That way they feel more important and responsible too. Have lots of common activities for both kids like feeding, bathing etc.
