I have a 2yr old son. Going on 3. He is very rowdy, and basically a typical boy. But...he doesn't take me as seriously as he does my husband, his father. Is this a typical mommy thing? Or should I be worried? Advice please!

It is all in how you speak to him...do you sound wishy-washy or stern?

I admit..sometimes I am a push over. Not as stern as I should be. But I feel so bad when I am. But now I can tell it might bite me in the butt!

Welcome to the group.

Yes, that is very normal for a three year old.  It's a pain, but it's normal. ;)

Good..then I'm not failing as a parent, lol. I was worried other parents might think I let my son walk on me somewhat. There are times he knows I'm serious. But then again I feel, he's 2...this is how they learn right? They aren't born and suppose to know everything right away. I feel a head start or even preschool might help. Not sure

Usually it's because dads mean business & stick to it. We both meant business so it was about the same with dad or me, LOL.
