My 4 year old son is introverted, quiet and shy. He is also sensitive and crys lots. His little brother is more extroverted and so is their dad. He recently told me that he likes the little one more as he gets along with him better. Also that the older one needs to harden up and is a sissy. Now he started to say those things more frequently out aloud so that our son hears them. he says he does not like daddy, that daddy scares him, which in turn makes his dad even more convinced that he is soft (in dad's eyes being soft for a boy is bad). I told my husband that he must accept his son for who he is or he has failed as a parent. I also said, that expect him to make more of an effort. It really hurts me as I love my son so much, both of them. But I am an introvert too and was very shy as a child and it hurt me the when people attched stigmas to me. How can I make my husband see that his comments don't help our son but only make him more shy?
