From Centro Integra, located , we carry out the treatment to overcome, manage and learn to act in the face of childhood jealousy.


Jealousy is a feeling of resentment and envy towards another person when they perceive a threat towards something that they consider as their own and the possibility that the loved person will not pay us their attention and give it to the other person. This comes to produce a feeling of frustration when we believe that we are no longer emotionally reciprocated by loved ones (parents, partners …) or, at least, not with the intensity and frequency that we would like.

Childhood jealousy is an emotion that can appear when children fear that they may lose the love and attention of their parents. Jealousy between siblings is one of the most common, but it can also appear in situations such as a new pregnancy, when changes arise in the family structure or when going through a new phase of “falling in love” with their parents.


Childhood jealousy can manifest itself through aggressive behaviors (hitting, biting, pinching, hitting «the rival» or parents) or in a more subtle way by consciously behaving in an annoying way (disobeying, acting badly, yelling, making annoying noises, …) . This generates that the parents pay attention to them and consequently they get an approach towards them even if it is caused by something negative, with which they get what they were looking for: that the parents pay attention to them.


The people who can help children the most to solve their jealousy problem are obviously parents. They must have an attitude of listening and absolute delicacy when addressing this issue with their children. They must understand why their children feel this way and practice empathy to gain insight into what has triggered the jealous behavior.

If a point is reached where parents cannot or do not know how to manage childhood jealousy, it is best to seek the help of a Psychologist to help them and guide them to overcome it.


The objective of the Psychologist when treating childhood jealousy is not that the child stops being jealous, but that it is focused on learning to manage and handle that emotion that is so negative to him and that causes his behavior to be the object of constant reprimands.
