Crying over anything
My son is three years old and has recently started crying over any and everything. His father and I are seperated and since he is in the military, he is often gone. For the past month or so, he has been very defiant and seems to be acting out; taking his time to follow direction or requiring duplicate instruction. When corrected, he cries and asks for his father. It is becoming very frustrating for me because I cant change the situation and the crying is (for lack of better words), getting on my nerves. My goal is to be patient but I am considering getting him counseling, if this behavior persists. Is there anyone who is going through or has been through anything similar? If so, what did you do?
