My son is three and a half. About a month ago he started saying "I'm a bad boy", and "you don't love me". Ususally this happens when he is told something he doesn't want to hear or do. Also, if I he asks for something, like he wants to draw, and I say yes you can but you have to draw at the table, he starts to whine and say "you said I can't draw? I can't play with my crayons?". It's like all he hears is the but and not the yes. This happens daily. And with the first scenario no one has ever told my son he is bad and our family tells each other we love eachother daily. I am concerned about his self esteem. How to I respond to him and is this normal or something to be concerned about.
