OK, so my stepson is 9 years old and still talks like a baby and acts like he's 2! It doesn't help that his mom talks to him like he's a baby and also treats him that way, but she doesn't see him very often as she lives in a different state. I'm talking like once or twice a year. But he just came back from visiting her over Christmas and won't stop talking like that. He talked to her on the phone last night and every time he talked he was talking like a dang baby again. Before they went to see their mom he was doing better with it.(He has 2 brothers whom she does not treat this way) I mean he hadn't stopped completely but he was doing better. Now it's like he's regressed back to 2 years old! We are getting aggravated and frustrated that he won't talk like a kid. So I was wondering if any of you momma's have any suggestions? Also, when she came to pick them up she was holding him like a baby!(along with talking to him like one and treating him like one)I was like WTH?! He's freaking 9 yrs old for crying out loud! I wish I would've said something but I didn't, cause she is his mom. Plus, I don't like the whole confrontation thing and whatnot. But I think next time I will! This is ridiculous! Please Help?Answer Question
