Help! I have a beautiful five year old son, but he has NEVER told me he loves me, and he hates any physical contact with me whatsoever. He won't even sit next to me on the couch so I can read him a book. Ican literally count on one hand how many times he has kissed me or hugged me. I did some research online about Reactive Attachment Disorder, but the only problem is he isn't angry, hard to handle, or resentful in any way. He is vivacious, chatty, extremely genourous and kind (to almost everybody but me). He won't even admit to loving me when asked. He will, however, admit to loving his aunt, dad and brother, but thats it. I'm trying to be patient, but it really really hurts my feelings, and I don't know how to handle it. Any suggestions?
