Possible Sibling Aggression

The life of a parent is a busy one, especially if you have more than one child to care for during the day. Inevitably, you are going to need to step out of the room from time to time, but it’s smart to use caution when leaving younger siblings together. 

If your child consistently cries when you leave the room, you may worry he is being hurt by a sibling. While it’s likely just separation anxiety, it’s best to take him with you if you suspect something physical is happening.

It’s always best to avoid leaving young children unsupervised; accidents can occur at any time.

A toddler is not yet capable of self-control and may become physical with a younger sibling, or could be hurt by an older sibling who is playing too rough. If possible, bringing your children with you when you have to leave the room is always the best option.
