Please tell me this is a phase


I recently gave birth to our 2nd child on 12/31. I now have 2 boys. My older son is 6 years old and has ASD. This transition from a family of 3 to a family of 4 has been challenging to say the least. My son has made 2 comments that break my heart. He said home wasn’t his favorite place anymore and tonight he said he doesn’t want to be here anymore. He always says he loves to weekends because he loves to be with mom and dad. So for him to say home isn’t his favorite place anymore kills me. We try to include him in everything with this brother without forcing anything on him and he is slowing opening up to him.

Please tell me this just a phase that new older siblings go through.
