I appreciate that answer. I do all that you have mentioned. I give him his security blanket, snacks, Barney videos that I pack for their overnight visit with their father. My other son Anthony will turn away from him once in a while but he is more easy going then Christian. Unfortunately, the father and I do not have a great relationship after many attempts of trying he is very demanding and not nice with me. When I do ask questions it seems to him there is never a problem - which, we all know with 16 month olds theres always something that is going on, whether they are climbing, running all over, throwing toys, but he never tells me the truth so unforatunately I will not know anything until my boys are speaking.
