I need a lot of advice on how to deal with getting my son through this divorce situation. He is so confused at 3 years of age, being tossed back and forth from one house during the week to another house on the weekends. It's only been two weeks, but I see how emotional and upset he is and really confused. He is acting out by spilling his juice everywhere, doing naughty things, he normarlly knows is wrong. He is my entire world, but I myself am not doing well with this seperation either and am losing my patience with is outbursts and sneaky little things he's pulling. I really really need all the help I can get from all the moms on here. Thank you so much. Megan.Answer Question

I agree he needs time, but remember if you are not handling it well he can sense that and will feed off your feelings.You really need him to be good and not add to the stress you already feel but he is 3 and does not have the ability to understand what is going on, and remember when he is testing you, and he will, thatÂ if it's hard for you and you know what and why this is happening, think how hard and confusing it must be on him. If you can just put that thought 1st when you are feeling frustrated with his behavior it may help you to be more patient. Also talk to him about how he is feeling any chance you get, let him know you understand he is confused and hurt and he has a right to feel that way and it's ok and you understand and love him no matter what happens between you and his father you both love him so much and just keep reassuring him as much as possible that it is not his fault.
