My young son has been acting out for the last 3 weeks. He has been hitting and kicking me, telling me he wants to hurt people, and crying/throwing tantrums much more than usual. Finally, tonight he told me he was angry with his father and cried himself to sleep in my arms. Recently his dad got a new girlfriend and has spent less and less time with him. He has, instead, opted to leave my son with his grandma whenever he has him, so he can spend time with his girlfriend. My son is used to the mother/father balance throughout the week, and I'm so new to this that I don't know what to do. Is there anyone who has been through this that can help? I'm open to all suggestions. I just want to see my sweet, little man back to himself. It's breaking my heart to see him this way.
