Hi I dont know if any one can help me but here goes.
I Have and 8 yr old boy who just got back hone from school hoildays fton his grandparents place ever since being home he been crying saying he misses them which is fair enough every child misses there grandparents but tonight he started crying again and talked with him saying he should be happy that your home with your family!!! But he says he is but not that much so of course that hurt alittle and now im realising he might not want to live at home with me amd his father and baby brother and sister anymore im not sure what to do!!
Im really lost!

That's very common and it's not that he doesn't love you. Think about it when he's with his grandparents he probably gets 100% of the attention all the time, gets to stay up later, not all the rules have to be followed, and probably eats too many sweets and not enough veggies. Stop stressing about, reassure him that it's ok to miss them, give him a time frame when he gets to go visit again so he has something to look forward to. My son cries everytime we leave my parents house after visiting, it's not that he doesn't love me it's just more fun there because they get to devote everything to him. I also know for a fact he doesn't want to move there because he's made it clear he doesn't want to move far from his dad (recently divorced) so stop making your son feel bad that he's upset.
