Tips for Siblings
A new baby is a new adjustment to the entire family, not just mom and dad! That's why Baptist Health Paducah offers a Sibling Class just for big brothers- and sisters-to-be.
Baptist Health Paducah's Sibling Class helps prepare children ages three to nine for the arrival of a new brother or sister. Information is designed to promote family bonding and decrease anxiety in children who may feel threatened by a new baby. This class is a special experience for the whole family. Parents may want to bring a camera or video camera.
This class meets the second Monday of each month at 4:30 p.m. in the Atrium Classroom of Baptist Health Paducah’s Doctors Office Building 2. There is no class fee. To register or for more information, phone (270) 575-BABY (2229).
Baptist Health Paducah also offers articles and information to help siblings adjust to the new arrival in their family. Click a link below for more information:
