My 5yr old son has done a complete 360. He used to be mama's boy and now he acts like he doesn't love me at all. I know he does of course but he is so mean to me. His father and I split when he was 3yrs old and he sees his father every weekend. I wonder if the split has something to do with his behavior. He wont give me hugs/kisses or hold my hand, no I love yous or anything! He also throws temper tantrums when he doesn't get his way. This breaks my heart - I just want my baby back. How can I fix this connection prob we are having??? PLEASE HELP

Hate to say it but no more kisses/hugs and hand holding is simply him growing up and wanting some independence. None of the 5yr olds at my sons kindergarten will allow their parents hugs/kisses etc. that is just babyish and embarrassing in their eyes.
