So my inlaws are really fun-loving, loud, big family people. They don't take much seriously (not in a bad way!) and love laughing, and find humor in alot. They are very open to my 2 year old DS and engage with him alot when we are over or when they are over our place. They run with him, are super active with him, and often buy him gifts when they see him (and they see him weekly).
My parents are more quiet and reserved. Don't like him touching things in their house, and often scold him when he is "acting up" (in their eyes). And acting up to them could be him trying to feed their cats more food in the food bowls that are left out. Also, when we are over, they seem to want to talk with me and my DH more than play or talk to my son. My 2 year old DS, is now started to be more verbal and when we say we're going to nana's house, he's now saying no no no. It breaks my heart because I love my parents, and want him to have a great relationship with them, but it seems like they don't do alot to get on his level. Any suggestions on how to get my parents and him to have a better relationship?
