If you are thinking about having a second child, then this topic will definitely interest you. I am absolutely sure that you have heard so many stories how having your second child would be much harder than your first. And no, parents, we are not talking about labor and delivery here, but about raising your child. Okay, so, let me share my personal story with you.

When my firstborn came, we were so excited and all about all those baby and parents things. You know how that goes, you are doing absolutely everything in your power to keep your child safe and to be as much sure as you can how he or she is growing up in a proper way. So, what happened to us? We were really a happy family. My little boy was completing all those milestones we have set for him and for us. Of course, we just wanted the best for our child. We were constantly trying to reach all of his talents and to make the best of those. Well, he really did great, and no, we weren’t bothering him. He really enjoyed it.

Okay, so a few years have passed, and suddenly I have found out that I was pregnant again. Can you even imagine how many sleepless nights have I spent by just worrying will we be those great parents again as we were with our first son?

Why have we thought that way, and especially me? Well, you hear so many stories how you don’t have enough time to take care for two children because that is not the same as caring for one (which is the truth actually), but there is one secret about that I will reveal you a little bit later in this article.

Okay, the pregnancy was going very well, and suddenly we have found out that we will get the second baby boy! Oh my God, how will I be able to handle two boys at the same time? I was literally panicking (without any obvious reason, besides those stories you hear from the other parents).

My second son was born, and we didn’t even have enough time to think if we were going to be such great parents as we were for our first son. The secret I was talking about above would be–your second child learns from your first. So, yes, if you have put a lot of effort in raising your first child, please calm down, enjoy your pregnancy, and enjoy your life with your children, because they are a huge blessing!

    It just really depends on the person. I’ve heard different kind of stories that can change this idea.

    Well, to me the second was the worst to raise. It just proves that it depends on what the person can deal with.

    I’ll be giving birth to my second one at the beginning of autumn and I’m really hoping he will be easier than the headaches my first one produced.

    My partner and I are confident on having a second one and believe that we can achieve and all the things we couldn’t for the first one.

    Every case is different. I have friends that tell me their second was worst, others that tell me it was easier. We shouldn’t try to file our children like that.
