I have a four year old son, and he goes to his dads that lives two and half hours away, every other weekend for Saturday night. When he comes home to me he is mean to me, he hits me, tells me he hates me, and will not listen. This usually last for about five days. Then it gets better, and then a few days before he goes to see his dad he is mean to me again. I don't know what to do. Any suggestions??

Around ages 4-5 kids go through a second "terrible twos" the technical term is negativism. The difference is they can talk and make you feel like a pile of crap. When my son started I was a wreck my sweet little boy was mean, etc and I couldn't understand what I did wrong. Well I looked up and found that an extent is normal. That said, it is not excusable, give him consequences for his actions, such as time out or a privileges taken away when he hits and uses rude words like "i hate you." Also do give him special time to like oustandinlove said, and always point out what he is doing good at too. Like when you think he might get upset when he doesnt get his way, but instead behaves well, point it out. Focus more on what he is doing well. Hope this helped.
