My son never wanted to leave me to stay at daycare either. There were times he didn't want to go to daddy's at that age. It doesn't necessarily mean anything other than that he misses you. You need to encourage him, and let him know his daddy loves him. You need to continue encouraging him to have that relationship with his dad in order for him to feel more comfortable leaving you.

It isn't unusual for a kid to not answer your questions either. Just leave it alone if he can't answer, that doesn't mean anything either. By all means, ask "did you have fun at daddy's", but don't read too much into his non response.

He may be telling him not too , tell you anything, may be putting him in the middle kids don't like that

My son is delayed with speech, so talking about things is difficult. He ignores me when I ask anything about his dads, even simple things like "what was for dinner."
