Kerry, you are right about the new 2 year old being at the bottom of your 6 year old's big change.   For 4 years he was the cute one that got all the attention.  then suddenly this small baby stole all his thunder - he felt pushed aside and ignored.  A HUGE self esteem gremlin now sits on his shoulder, telling him ways to get your attention - good or bad, it doesn't matter to your 6 year old.  Any attention is better than none.


It will take a little time, but once you identify the problem it is easy to fix.  Try giving him special time with you and your husband every day.  One of you mind the two year old while you or your husband take your son for a short walk. Ask him about his day, toss a ball together in the yard, or read him a special story.  PRAISE him lavishly for every little thing he does right.  Tell him he is much smarter, and can do all sorts of things his sibling can't.  Give him some small chore he can be in charge of.   Take the teacher into your confidence. Get her on-board with the praise and knocking that nasty gremlin off his shoulder.  The idea is to make him feel special, important, and the brave and smarter big brother who looks after his younger sibling.


Once he feels he is receiving your loving attention and praise once more, and he regains his sense of importance and PLACE in your family, his bad behavior will go away.  When a child feels displaced, for whatever reason, whether it is really the case or just their imagination, acting out is their answer.  In their minds, it is better to get attention for bad behavior than NO attention at all. 

A new baby brings a huge change into a child's life. I even wrote a picture book about Big Changes, and how they can affect small children. Death, divorce, a move away from friends and family OR  a new cute baby:  they can all make kids this age act out.

Do Let me know how it works out, mate.
