I have a caring and gentle husband. My son is all over him , when he's home my 2yld son spend all his day with him . He wants him to bath, feed , change clothes & diapers. He wants him to take him out buy toys ..... my husband do that all and he never complains . But the problem is that my 2yld son is also jealous of his dad he doesn't let him talk to me hold my hands kiss me or sleep by my side . We try to ignore that since he was 8 moth old but it's getting more annoying . My son starts screaming crying hitting his father & me some times he insults him ( bad man ) and threatening him ( i'll hit u ).

Is there a way we could teach him that it's ok for his dad to be with me !!!! sounds crazy !!!

He is 2 and it sounds like you have given in to his behavior, so basically you have told him it is ok to be this way. The solution will not be easy nor will your son be happy with the change, but don't let him rule the roost. Your son should have his own bed and sleep in it, your husband needs to move back into your bed. If your son start to throw a fit put him in his room tell him he can come out when he is ready to behave. Then walk away and ignore the bad behavior, if he comes out before he is done put him right back in his room. If he insults daddy tell him we do not talk to people like that and again remove him from the situation, and go back to your husband. Your son has learned at an early age that he is in control it is now time for you to take that control back.
