My 23 month old freaks out whenever we go to see my Mother In Law (his Dad's Mom). We don't go over all the often, just for holidays and birthdays, but sometimes I have had to drop him off so I can get important errands done (only twice). When we go over there he insists on being held all the time and we have to hold him just to get in the door because he won't go in by himself. Whenever she tries talking to him he screams and cries and it makes me feel terrible. All the other Grandchildren have no problem being over there and he is not like this with ANYONE else. He even hugged the handyman we had over to fix the toilet. I have discussed this with my Mom and my hubby but we have no idea what is wrong. Does anyone else have this problem? I even checked him for bruises or any signs of abuse because I was so worried why he acts that way, but nothing. I don't want to ever take him over there again because it makes me feel so bad.Answer Question

My daughter is that way with my favorite cousin. She is ok with everyone else, but afraid of my cousin. If she even talks to Emma while I'm holding her, she cries & turns away. I have no idea why. My cousin even looks a lot like me! The only thing we can figure out is maybe her voice pitch. We know she'll outgrow it. Emma will get over it when she gets older. Like Harrisonsmommie said, its probably something absolutely ridiculous. I would not limit time with MIL though, just don't leave him there. Hold him the entire time if you need to so he knows its a safe environment.
