Ok. My son whines and crys and is miserable and it seems to be ONLY for me... WHY??? I don't cater to his whining, I ignore when they are for nothing, I have rules but I also try to be silly and fun and I love him SO Much.. but WHY is he like this for Me?? its ALL the time and It makes me SO SAD and disappointed and it makes being a mommy a million times harder than it is already. I do charts and stickers and we play but every morning he wakes up whining and sometimes won't snap out of it for the whole 2 hours I am with him and as soon as I pick him up he's like that for me too. My mom has him in the afternoons and says its clearly for my benifit. he has ALL my attention when I am with him. what am I doing wrong?

It is not you, it is him. Some kids are high needs. You may try and find out what irritates him. He could have a sensory integration problem, or just an emotional kid. I have a kid with a sensory integration disorder
and when he was younger, he would wake up irritable. I had him checked for sugar problems since eating helped with his attitude. I found that he needed bear hugs to help him adjust his crying and bad attitude.
