My son just turned 5 in March and for a while now we have been having some issues. Right now it's just me, him and my long term boyfriend of the last 4 years. My boyfriend is not daddy. They don't love each other, but get along well when I'm not around, doing their own thing. When I'm around if my son is awake he is eating & whining. Not to be mean, but I'm not exaggerating. He wont play alone, & doesnt want to play with his toys. He is upset about everything all the time & does things he knows hes not supposed to, refusing to listen to any rules. Then he cries. He gets upset because he's hungry, even if we JUST ate. He eats and drinks CONSTANTLY. He will eat till he says hes stuffed and as we're clearing plates he is asking about eating again. He is probably 4' and thin. The only time he is content is playing video games, which bothers me because I don't like them. Weve tried family games and outings, but he's still miserableAnswer Question

umm... I think you should take him to the Doctor about the eating thing. Him eating all the time and is still thin is not right. He may have a thyroid problem or a parasite. It's best to get him checked for those things first. If everything is okay on that, then he needs to see a therapist. Also, monitor the time that you BF and son spend alone, I'm not saying your BF is doing anything bad to your son... but it never hurts to check.
