  • Is he good all day for you? If so, I'd continue to be in charge of his behavior when his mother arrives so she can see how you handle him (since she apparently puts up with his crap). Besides, it's still your house your rules. Maybe they can both learn something from you.

    If the mother comes to pick him up at a consistent time each day maybe you could start having him clean up his toys/activities before she arrives and have him sitting doing something quiet when his mother gets there.
