just remember all the good times u have had with her and tell yourself that i know she loves and i'm special to her
just say to your-self that u know that ur mom loves u very much and i can never be replaced
I've never had a brother or sister, but I can say how depressing it is to see someone who u loved from all ur heart actually neglecting ur presence. It gives u the feeling that no one ever loves u. U start regretting the times when u fussed abt ur mom being so caring ..... That's one of the reasons I don't wanna have a sibling... But trust me, no matter what, they love u a lot, they just don't get the time to show u....
I felt that way with my oldest younger sister but she was only taking care of her because babies are soft, and they can get hurt easily.Your parents will never replace you because they love you.
See, I have two sisters, sometimes my mom nearly ever spends time with me cause now she has a new husband and my sisters that are always making trouble. I think you just have to get time in for you and your mom. Or talk to her about it.
I thought my mom replaced me when my bro was born. But she loves me the same. Just a warning siblings = Pains in head
Your mom didnt replace you, she has to spend more time with her baby because babies are so fraglie, and need lots of love, please, and try to help her with the baby, its always nice.
I used to feel that way, but just know that your parents still loves you even if you have a new sibling in the family.
I have a brother but I don't really mind except that he annoys me but my parents treat us equally,
it might feel like she replaced u but she loves u
the only way to get her attention is not to talk to her
Remember,life is to enjoy not to waste time sulcking!!!
The right way to catch your mums attention is to show ACTUAL INTEREST in your new baby sister
Hope this helped
i felt like that when my lil bro was born but i never said nothing but don't do what i do cuz it just makes things worst. trust me i know
i've felt like that to, tell her how u feel.
she loves u as much as the baby ok ur not replaced
I totally agree my mom I think she's pregnant and I am afraid she'll replace me and forget about me that's the reason I've been getting advice. I've been having nightmares about my mom having a baby and she forgot all about me and I had to live in my laundry room. . but your advice has relay helped me. maybe I will come back to your chat advice you relay helped me out .
ps:i am ten 10
I know that feeling too Well, i don;t know how old u are but sometimes, you can be all grown up, and your mom needs to take care of your sister or brother. Or maybe try to talk about it to your mom. Good luck!
well every family goes through this..i went through it myself....three times, so i know. it is normal for grown-ups to spend a lot of time with their new baby. it happens. when babies are left unattended, they might get hurt, and your mom wants to keep the baby in her sight 24/7 right? ok, thats very normal. but if u feel like she is ignoring you constantly, wait until she is not busy with something, and tell her you feel ignored. no mom should make their children feel ignored.just tell her.
