My son is 2 1/2 years old and lately he has changed. We live with his grandparents my bf mom and dad and his mother constantly carries him I don't know how to make it stop. Also I was always taught if a child throws a tantrum about something then don't give in but she always does even trying to let him stay up past bed time idk what to do. Idk what to say please help!!!

Step up and stand up to your inlaws. If they are doing things that are detrimental (carrying a perfectly capable child everywhere, allowing him to stay up too late, bribing him or giving in to him constantly), then you need to be a parent and put a stop to it.

Tell all of them that you know they love the boy, but that you would appreciate their help in raising a self sufficient child who knows how to follow rules and adhere to guidelines. If they don't listen, perhaps its time to figure out why you're still living in their home, rather than on your own as a family.
