Your mom could be right, but still keep your eyes peeled. Kids usually don't just turn for no reason. He could be associating the fall with your boyfriends house...which turns into not liking your boyfriend. Along with the comments from the dad...voile...



Just give him a lot of very positive attention, and make sure your boyfriend does too. You may need to talk with your ex about etiquette concerning how the both of you handle new relationships when it comes to your child. Such as holding your tongues when it comes to insults, or any negativity. I am sure your ex would be fuming if you bad mouthed his new girl in front of your kid and turned him on her.

The only negative thing that happened is my three year fell out of bed and hit his head on the night stand one night that we stayed there. My boyfriend has never been alone with him. He did have a bump around his eye and his father made a nasty comment. Honestly I was there and know nothing bad happened but now he doesn't want to be around him. He used to love being with him. I think his father's side of the family may have said things to him. Because he told my mom one night after that his dad hit him. Now I know for a fact that his dad would never hit him and I know for a fact my boyfriend would not. I am just not sure what to make of all of this.



My mom said it might be attention that he likes that he got from this.... even though it was negative.

Even though your 3 year old may not articulate exactly why, you can ask him/her what happened, and piece it together.

?? Is there more to that? All I can say, is there is a reason for a child to turn on someone instantly like that. Someone may have talked to him about your boyfriend, or your boyfriend did something your 3 year old did not like. In the mean time, do not leave your boyfriend alone with your child, and make sure your child knows they are more important than the boyfriend. Do you have more details? I would confront the boyfriend, and see if he gets all flustered and defensive. Dead give away that something isn't right.
