  • nothing. my son is the same way, and i've always read that you should be grateful, that means they are acting up to get your attention or something to that effect. I dunno. If you figure it out let me know!!

  • When my son goes to his dad's every other weekend he is an angel. When I get him back Sunday night he is a demon spawn. I figured out that he stays up late, doesn't always get a nap, and is spoiled rotten by his dad and step-mom. They cater to his temper tantrums and whining. So when he comes back home there is normally a 24 hour period of extreme discipline before he is a good kid again. I think you should ask your mom what she does when you lil one misbehaves. That should tell you which one of you isn't being strict enough.
