First of all, my son is not even a year old ( 11 mos. ). He is in a shy stage and we live an hour away from most family, so he doesn't see them often. When we visit family or friends that he doesn't see often, he wraps his arms around my neck and puts his cheek against mine for comfort. If I have to leave the room to use the bathroom, he crawls up to the bathroom door crying and waits for me to come out. When I do, I get a huge "Don't ever leave me again!" hug and the tears dissappear instantly.
My sister's son is 7, rude, loud, and in a defiant stage. He refuses to listen to my sister about anything and actually tells her to shut up and mind her own business when she tells him to clean his room. She doesn't see a problem with this, except to blame it on his father that he only sees for a few hours a week. She never uses actual punishment with her kids, just empty threats, so they are all completely out of control ( think Super Nanny material ).
First of all, my son is too young to be a mama's boy, but even then, what is wrong with a baby loving his mother and prefering her over aunts he sees a dozen times a year? She says it like its a very negative thing to be a mama's boy, but I don't see a problem with a little boy showing affection for his parents. Opinions?
