my son is 7 yrs old and he has always been a momas boy untill about 3 months ago and then he started throwing a fit to sleep and stay at his papa and memas house (my mom and dads place) now my parents do live just right across the drive way from me but at night i just feel empty like i'm a bad mom when he goes over to their house for the remainder of the night! i also have a 8 month old little boy and i dont know if my oldest is doing it because of attention or what? well about 3 months ago i started making him sleep in his own bed instead of in my bed between my fiance and myself and my parents let him sleep with them.. now my son and my fiance do fight alot and argue about everything and they did that before we decided to get married! but i'm worried that could be why he dont wanna stay home. if it is how do i break the habit? i just want my son to say i'm tired will you get me a blanket so i can go to sleep on the couch? but instead now he says i'm tired i am going to grandma and grandpas house!! so he gives me a goodnight kiss and heads on.. now i did live with my parents untill he was 4 yrs old and my mom and dad have been there since birth and would give him the world if they could! could it just be a comfort zone for him to be there with them? please help i'm confused am i bad mom because i am VERY gullable when it comes to my kids and i let them back talk and yell and scream and do and eat whatever they want?should i harden up and let him cry when i tell him that hes not going to grandma and grandpas that hes gotta stay home? or should i just let him sleep over there because he is more comfortable and sleeps better?
