Quoting Sonia[MOBAS]:" LOL My son has always been very dependent on me to be at his side. He still doesn't spend much time ... [snip!] ... to be around me. My DD is so independent and doesn't really care where I am as long as she can be off doing her own thing."


Yup, that's my kids to a T. My son entertains himself very well, but I have to be in his site. Almost has a panic attack if I'm out of his view, and it's been this way since he was an infant.



DD on the other hand, couldn't care less where I'm at. She's so stinkin independent.

It's like we have the same children.

Has your son gotten better? How does he do with going to school?



I'm terrified for when the time comes for my son to go to school. I'm scared for him. I try not to let him see any of my emotions like that, because I want him to be brave and step away from me, but his feelings get hurt so easily :(

My son has had a LOT of issues in school :cry:



He demands attention from his teachers as well and has a hard time working independently. I have to say that sometime I wonder if I made him this way by trying to make him independent.

Oh man :( I often wonder if I did this to my son too. We cosleep and spend almost every waking moment together. When he started portraying the signs of separation anxiety around 7 months old I tried really hard to get him out of it. I don't like using the ''young'' excuse, but I was only 20 years old and felt getting my housework done was too important, and that he needed to learn to be independent.



But at the same time, I was the same way, and am still pretty shy and have a hard time with change. I'm hoping his pediatrician will have some insight.

Good luck maybe if you see a professional now you can fix this before he gets to the point where my son is. I feel so bad for him, he has such a hard time with change and acts out because of it. I have been trying to give him more one on one time but when it is just me and the kids it is hard to do that.

I hope it helps. We also just moved to a new house. I wonder if this change is causing him to act out, it would make sense. I try to give him one on one time, but yes, it's very hard when I'm home alone with both the kids.



I hope your DS get's better, maybe it's something he will outgrow.

I would cry too :( sometimes I have no idea where he's learned to behave this way and where he's learned to say some of the things he says.

I hope, he has improved quite a bit. I just hope we continue to move in the right direction.
