My soon-to-be three-year-old has lost interest in spending time with his aunt, my sister. He used to love spending time with her, but since we came back about 10 days ago from staying with her for a few days to get away from my emotionally abusive husband, he's not wanted to see her at all. In the past few days, he has also been very clingy to me, wanting to be held ALL the time, and not nearly as interested in his usual activities. He still acts the same with his dad - sometimes happy with him, sometimes not. Whenever I ask him if he wants to go to her house, or go do an activity with her, he says no. On Friday, I took him to her for an already planned event, but he completely freaked out and I had to bring him home. Why is he acting in such a way with my sister? Do you think the recent break is affecting him and he is blaming her? Is he in a protective mode and afraid when I am not with him? Or is it just a normal stage he's going through? I don't know what to do with this... it's very unusual. He loves being with her.
