My son responds very differently with me than my husband. With me.... it's almost as if he wants back into the womb. He gets very emotional about anything. yes means no and no means yes sometimes. He grabs my hand to bring me into a room, i ask him to explain or show me what he wants, but then he justs gets more emotional and needs to be picked up. When i try to talk to him at eye level, he climbs all over me. basically he acts as if at any moment i'm going to drop him off at an orphanage. i give him lots of love and hugs and kisses. he's not lacking attention. i'm a stay at home mom so it's not separation anxiety. And to top it off, he doesn't respond to discipline by me, just reacts with tears. I'm tried being gentle, tried tough love, tried ignoring it, tried distraction.. pretty much anything. but NOTHING works. it always ends up with me in tears and my husband coming home from work early. HELP ME!!!!!Answer Question
Not just talking to him at eye level, but on a level where he understands and sees that you understand him as well. Maybe check your local library to see if they have it (book or DVD). It certainly can't hurt.
