Just a dream

Today, at midnight, I heard my son calling for his mom. I stopped by his room and asked him what was wrong? He didn't tell me. Instead, he said: "Oh, I don't need you." FML

I know that it sucks to hear something like that, but sometimes kids are picky about who they talk to/ need for certain things. I know growing up, and also even now, that there were moments when I needed my mom instead of my dad. Try not to take it too hard, he will need you many times in the future!

Maybe he didn't feel that you'd comfort him if he had a nightmare, or that you'd tell him to toughen up. Sometimes dads don't give a gentle touch and when they're scared, they want that over tough love. I could be all wrong, but you are two different people with different ways of handling different situations. Maybe he just doesn't like how you do it. On the plus side...at least you won't have to get up at midnight to comfort him.

This is a good opportunity to teach him that you're just as approachable and willing to help. He must learn that his mother can't be available for him all the time.
