Hi I am Mom,
I put the brakes on breast feeding some time ago but he will not let go of the idea, he will be 5 Nov 23rd this is causing me sleeplessness. He was not pursuing the boobie for quite some time but recently the last 2 nights has been impossible screaming to be just beside me in bed (not asking to breast feed) just wanted Mommy. I had addressed some dietary concerns around sugar in the winter and two days ago coincidentally he ate almost a whole bag oy Easter Hershey Kisses which were tucked away for an easter egg hunt. I am concerned with the fact that as an only child he gets caught for every little thing and consequenced for every little thing. Dying on a small mountain is creating a larger one. As a child I was responsible for 1/5 the consequence and my mother would pick her battles based on seriuosness, I think the two different styles and need for control are confusing this child. Can you advise on a parenting book for the blended family or new parent ( does not wish for my son to call him Daddy, when my son asks he is adement to make sure my son understands he is not his Daddy) I am attemting to tighten up my approach but I do need some advice for sure.
