  • How long have you lived in your new place? Maybe you could make a big deal and let him decorate his new room and get some sticky things for his wall if you can or go pick out a new comforter for his bed. Help him turn this new home into his home! Also maybe plan some special activities with him and keep him busy doing some kind of new craft for the home. Any thing to keep his little mind occupied and to help him adjust and make his new home and home for him! I hope this helps some.

  • The not sharing and all sounds like he is definitely having some attachment issues due to the uprooting of moving... It would be best to make sure he understands (in whatever way you can get the point across) that no matter what, you and his daddy will ALWAYS be there for him, that his toys and his room are HIS, and that things are weird right now but it doesn't change how much you love him, etc. It sounds like he just really needs some stability, and you are the only one that can provide that. Good luck!
