I'm not a mom, but a dad. I have a 5 year old son who is always wanting everything my 2 year old step son has, always acting like him also. He's been in this crying about everything stage for quite awhile now also. Idk what to do anymore. Will someone please help with some advice or how I can fix this before my baby gets old enough to mimic this behavior?

I'm going to ask the same as the other 2, what are the consequences for this behaviour? Do you eventually give in? If so, that your problem.

The five year old is probably seeking attention. He sees how much the 2yo receives and acts out. Negative attention is still attention. Like Ev asks, what have youtried to modify his behavior?
