Right now I'm living with my parents (mother mainly). They are spoiling the crap outta my son. They are giving him rewards like toys & stuff for his behavior when he doesn't deserve it at all. Whenever he whines or throws a tantrum, he gets what he wants! I''m so freakin' annoyed by this. I can't move out until this whole court battle is over with. (its a long story) basically all I can say is moving out isn't an option right now at all. I've exhausted every option possible. I'm trying to teach him that he can't whine to get what he wants. He can't throw a fit bc he didn't get what he wants than get it ! ya know ? He acts up SO much whenever my parents are around. Yesterday my parents left & he behaved SO well. As soon as they walked in the door, he was whiny & throwing fits over stupid crap. Guess what ? He got whatever he wanted ! The worst part is my MOM knows he does this! She has asked me more than once if he was acting like that before she got home. I said nope he was a completely diff kid. "Oh ok" that's it & goes on her merry way. She has told me she is scared that if we are "too" strict he will want to live with his dad. If she continues doing this while I'm living here.. he's going to catch on that and use it aganist me! She's only hurting him. How do I handle this ?
I mean don't get me wrong he isn't a bad kid at all. He listens very well, just he knows how to get away with things with my parents. That's it. Its normal for a kid to use that kinda stuff aganist you, thats why you are suppose to show them different. ya know ?
How do I fix this w.o making my living situation full of more tension ?
