Just that really. I'm finding it very upsetting that DS chooses to be with his dad and today he came home and screamed because he wasn't here. He would prefer anyone over me, including big sister and grandma and auntie.
I don't know why this has happened but he also has taken against girls at school and his main friend at school also has told him not to kiss his Mum goodbye at school...
Anyone else been through this?

I think it is quite normal. We have the same but the other way round in that DS seems to prefer me. Luckily DH doesn't seem to mind too much, but I would be very hurt if it were me that were the out of favour one. We have found it goes in stages, DS will go through phases where he prefers DH. I don't know what the answer is, but it is likely just a phase.
