I am currently going through a divorce from my husband and my 2 1/2 yr old has recently started acting out. I also just had a baby about 7 weeks ago. He wont listen, seems to do everything he can to push each and every button I own. I swear he spends half of his time in time out or having things taken away from him. He knows that daddy doesnt live with us anymore but I dont think he understands whats really going on. It sucks right now cuz daddy gets to be the fun one since he only sees him once a week and gets to take him swimming and out to do fun things. I unfortunitly have to be the tough one as I am trying to raise him and my other son alone, with no money.
Did anybody else's child act out during or after the divorce and if so how did you handle it? I need help I am so tired of yelling at him by the end of the night I just cry once I get him to bed. Any advise would be greeat!View Thread
