Psychologist explains the best way to talk to small to avoid traumas and we show creative ideas to let more light and fun revelation
A new pregnancy is usually celebrated by most mothers, after all it’s a chance to raise a family and give a little friend to his son (a) older. But how to break the news to children without scaring it or have a negative impact? How to show that this really is news to be celebrated, not a situation of insecurity and jealousy for the firstborn?
The Gláucia psychologist Faria, psychology service coordinator at Children’s Hospital Sabara, explains that the best thing to do is to choose a time when the small is free of distractions and approach the subject of sincere and natural way: “It is important that news be told by their parents so that the child does not need to join adult conversations of fragments and understand on their own. ”
To avoid disappointment, you, Mom, keep in mind that even choosing the best time, the reaction your child may be different from what you expected. “The child, depending on their age, will not give signs that it is interested in the subject, but that does not mean she did not understand. You must watch and wait, because over time may arise questions and concerns that must be answered carefully, “said the psychologist.
If your child does not face the arrival of the little brother naturally or do not like the idea, do not try to force it: some mothers try to engage the child in all the preparations for believing that this way she empolgará, but the result can be the opposite as Gláucia explains: “Some details can be shared. One may ask what the child thinks that his brother might like, what color blanket, toy or gift, but nothing much responsibility. ”
Also watch your belly: no be asking for your small talk to the little brother, to fondling, kissing, etc. Often what has meaning in the adult world does not make sense to children. “If the interaction with the belly from the child or if she is imitating someone, ok, but be careful not to impose something without meaning.” We do not want to cause confusion in older little head, right !?
Finally, even if you are not very happy with the reaction, respect the time of your child. “Do not react, fight or make you feel guilty. Just wait a while and let the thing open, like, ‘you do not want a brother now, but will see how it will be cool …’. ”
