I have written on here before but only got one reply. I really need your help here. I am a stay at home mom to a 5 year old boy. Strong willed boy (like his mother). His father is a softer gentler kind of man but certainly is good at discipline when needed.
Here it is....my son says things to me like :
"my life would be better if you were not in it mom"
"I like my dad better and always have"
"you are not my favorite person".
These are all things that have been going on for I would say 2 years.
I have done the talking to the hubby so that he is more hands on when he is home......and trying to make things more fun for me.... I let him discipline when he is home and try not to intervene....I take my son on playdates. just home from 3 days camping ( the two of us)..to which the whole time I was told " I really miss my dad....I wish dad was here instead of you". Huh? I don't get it. I really don't.
I do not spank. I never have. I use logic and try my best to remain calm when he makes me nuts. Yes I have failed and have tried to say sorry each and everytime.
I have read not to read too much into this....but 2 years of this and I am really starting to ditach.
Help me please !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
