Since many first-borns are in some type of classroom setting when a new sibling comes along, it’s important that their new status is recognized and celebrated among their teachers and peers. Sally Haughey , an educator for over 17 years and founder of Fairy Dust Teaching agrees and goes out of her way to celebrate big transitions in a small child’s life. I loved what she did for her student Cole who was welcoming a new baby sister. Check out this Big Brother book and Baby Sister card. Adorable. Don’t be afraid to ask your first born’s teacher for ways to acknowledge this life change. Most teachers will be happy to honor this milestone.
