Help With Sibling School Separation

 

You will find that when your older child begins school the younger sibling in many cases is completely lost.  Their playmate and partner in crime is gone and they do not know what to do with themselves.  They have spent the beginning years of their life imitating their big sister or brother. You must realize and be prepared to spend more time with them and try to take their feelings into consideration. 

There are many activities that you can plan that will amuse them:

 

 

You can take a class together...

  • Swim lessons -- mommy and me classes are very popular

  • Music classes are well received by toddlers

  • Check out your local library for their reading hour schedule.

  • Many arts and craft stores have classes for children.

 

 

 

 

Keep a picture Journal...

  • Once a week, in their journal, have your child cut clippings from magazines or draw a picture of the favorite thing that you did together that week.   This will give them a goal to achieve each week, practice on basic skills and something to share with their older sibling.

 

 

Make your youngster part of their sibling's school experience...

  • Introduce them to the teacher

  • Have them play on the playground

  • Bring them to events at the school both in and out of the classroom

  • Have your older child tell the younger one how their day went and let them show them the work that they completed

 

 

 

Recreate the school experience for them at home...

  • Purchase workbooks and begin to teach them how to color in the lines and write their name

  • Have circle time with them and explain the days of the week or seasons of the year

  • Do a reading session - pick out favorite books, a special chair and take the time to read everyday.  See our reading list for some suggestions

  • Purchase a lunch box -- pack it with their lunch and have a lunch hour.  Especially for those children who have siblings that are gone all day.

  • Try nap time with a mat on the floor.  It may just work!!!

  • Organize field trips to the park, local museums, or indoor play facilities.

  • Don't forget Physical Education class.  It is a great time to kick a soccer ball, pitch a base ball or jump rope.

 

 

Form a new playgroup...

  • Your child will be able to socialize in a familiar environment.

  • They will learn to share with other children
