My son is almost 3. His bio father has not really been in his life at all, and seems to be compltely out of the picture now. But my fiance and I have been together since my son was 1 and he calls him daddy. But these days, especially when it comes to him sitting quietly in timeout, my son will not listen to me, only his daddy. When he tells him to do something he does it, when I tell him to he does nothing or the opposite. What can I do to get him to listen to me? Why does he only listen to him? I've been here longer.. you'd think it would be the other way around!Answer Question

I think when Children want some one's approval they do just about anything to please them! Listening to your fiance will keep him in his good graces and also, a boy looks up to a man..your mommy, he knows you love him and your always going to be around right? So he doesn't have to work as hard to keep or win your approval. Also there's something more firm about a male voice, and intimidating too!
