Our grand son is 2years and 9 months, as bright as a button and very fluent. He speaks like a 4 years old. We are close to him, as my daughter and him lived with us for the 1st year of his life, and we mind him 3 days a week, while she is at work. Recently, he has statred being very verbally mean to his grand dad, who takes it all to heart. "I don't want you in the room", "I don't like you", " go away"are heard a few times a day. or he ignores his grand dad completely. My husband takes it all to heart and is very upset, believing his relationship with this much loved grand son is finished. GS seems to have similar attitudes to the other men in his life. I try to tell my husband that it is a phase, that it will pass, and that showing the child how upset he is just feeds the negativity of the situation and gives GS too much power. Has anyone come across this? How did you handle it?
