Parent asks: what do you advise for a stressed out, overwhelmed mom dealing with a four-year-old who is kicking her new younger sister?
"I have two daughters: one who is 4 and one who will be 1 in September. My older daughter initially was fine with having a new sister and wasn't jealous. But lately she's been getting irritated with her sister and kicking her. Without having family nearby or in-home helpers (like nannies or maids), I'm stressed out and feeling overwhelmed as a stay-at-home mom of two young kids. I want to be a good mom but find myself getting angry with my older daughter, especially when she kicks her sister. What do you advise for our family to improve this situation?"
