why does my child behave perfectly for others but as soon as i'm around he acts horrible?

everyone that my son stays with tells me how great he was while he was there but as soon as i get there to pick him up he turns into a brat. starts throwing tantrums and acts out of control. my dad says its because i don't know how to mother right and that i don't disipline him enough but i have read that this is normal. I don't know what to!!! i know i am a great mom.
