My 5 yr old is extremely attached to me. It was just myself and the kids for a few years but, I've been in a relationship for almost a year now and his habits are becoming worse. He acts very babyish when I'm around and is the complete opposite when I'm not...He is very self sufficient. My daughter was not this way at all when she was younger and she is now 9 yrs old. I've tried the reassuring with him that I will always be his mom, but the he makes choices and very noticeable ones depending on who he is with and mainly he is this way around me and his grandparents. I'm looking for ways to approach this. Any input I would be greatful for.
