My Story of Being a Mother to an Infant and a Toddler

I am a mother of two. Although I am an educator, right now I am a homemaker with two tiny tots in my house. There is chaos in my house every single day as my two little ones are growing up. Taking care and meeting the demands of children is not easy. My first child, a girl, was born in December 2014. She is a happy and playful child. She was 4 when we welcomed our second little one. She was very supportive during my second pregnancy and was excited and eager to meet her partner in crime. But as soon as my son was born, she turned into a different person altogether. She became an attention-seeking child. She wanted me to cuddle her and talk playfully to her. She used to get angry and cranky for small things and would cry a lot.In the beginning, I used to get angry and yell at her a lot but that made her more stubborn. Then we realised that we need to talk to our children with love and care and express our love to them. We also understood that it is important to make a child understand the difference between right and wrong. Giving an equal amount of time to both the children is important.If you want to make time for both your kids, you can play with them and do their favourite stuff. You can ask your older child to help you with your work. Let your elder child do things for their younger sibling. Make the elder one understand that the younger one is also a part of the family. Always appreciate them for their good work. Most importantly, never let your child feel that he or she is being ignored. The way you behave with them in their growing years, they will remember always. So, always be your child’s role model.
