3 year old is whining and regressing - HELP
My 3 year old son is the youngest of 4 boys. I have had a very difficult year this past year with chronic pain and medical problems. We (me and the kids) just returned from Boston after being there for a month and a half while I sought medical treatment. Now my youngest son is so whiny and clingy it is just driving me nuts. He is also regressing and saying things like "I can't walk, carry me". All of the kids have been through a lot this year and seen mommy in unbelievable pain on many occasions, crying and sobbing. All of them are acting out in different ways, but this one is by far the most annoying. Should I give into him and carry him or just ignore it? I am just at my wits end with him. He cries and whines about everything. He always was a bit of a whiner, but it has just gotten so much worse lately. i know he needs a lot of reassurance that mommy is getting better and give him lots of attention. I just need some tips on how to stop the whining. Any input would be appreciated.
