My ex husband's new girlfriend has a 2 year old son, and he cries every time my ex husband comes in the room, he is terrified of him, I know that the mom never punished her child before they met, and my ex husband and I have 3 girls that her son has to adapt too, but it's too the point where both of them don't know what to do, he has never hit him, never threatened him, the only thing he has done is put him in time out or used a firm voice. It is starting to take a toll on my ex husband as well as his relationship with his girlfriend, I really like her and don't know how to help her, she cannot get him to stop crying.

Hello, first of all good for you having a good relationship with your ex and his new girlfriend. I think that it is a really big adjustment for a 2 yr old to make. Where is the little boy's Father? If he was in the picture and now gone replaced by your ex then he might be rebelling a little. Maybe just asking him several leading questions starting with stuff like, Do you like him? Are you afraid of him? Do you not want him to be here? etc. See what he has to say.
