Have Parenting Questions? Ask a Parenting Counselor for Answers
Hi, sorry your children are being used as pawns by your wife, this is way too common and so bad for the children. I would suggest you find a good child psychologist and bring both your children for play therapy. With the current situation it is normal for a child to react that way, he doesn't have the cognitive ability to understand what is happening to his family. I'd be concerned and if it's at all possible I would suggest to your wife that she is hurting her children to satisfy her own agenda. She won't like it but she may start to think twice about what she is doing. Be supportive of your children, try to console and comfort. Don't try to make your son stop using "baby" talk, just ignore the fact that he is. Don't say anything negative to them about their mother either (I know wouldn't), just validate that both of you love them and are doing what is best for the family.
