My son just turned 4 in January ,but the behavior has been going on a while now. Let me explain if he wants something to eat and his Dad fixes the food for him he will screem and have a fit until I "fix" it for him and the same goes with drinks I am the one that has to pour the juice in the cup or we have a melt down. His dad gets upset at this because i say its something to probably do with him being autistic and his dad says he's just spoiled and he says that a lot about many of the kids hehaviors.(I have three kids with autism) I want to know if any other familys have this similar problem or behavior in there child or husband..lol



Thanks a lot, Carrie Kowaliuk

My boyfriend (my son's Dad) thinks the same thing. But they are creatures of routine so it can be hard. What I do is explaine to my son before hand that his Dad will be doing something I normally do he may still get a little upset about it, especially if it's putting him to bed. But he's a lot better if he's mentaaly prepared for the change ahead of time. Hope this helps

I have had the same issue with my son, who turned 4 in January also. My son always wants me to do certain things and not his Dad. He's getting a little better. He hates it if his Dad puts him to bed, he only wants me to do it and there have been other things too. Does your husband usually cook or give him his drink or is it rare and you usually do it? He may want you to do it because you are the one who usually does. Remember, they hate change.
