My 2 yr. old son and I just moved into my boyfriends house with him last weekend. My son likes my boyfriend and my boyfriend is great with him (with both the loving and the discipline) but he's acting very emotional lately and is very clingy to me. I realize that between his age and all of the major changes going on, he's going to act out... but I am having difficulty figuring out what he needs from me and what he wants. I don't want to encourage some of this behavior (him breaking down every time I take a step away) but I don't want him to feel as though I'm not "there for him". If there's anyone who has been through something similar, please let me know if this is just something that will pass or how I should deal with it. Thank you.
