I am spending the week staying at BIL and SIL's house with their 3 and 1/2 year old son. They are attentive, caring parents. Some of their son's behavior makes me terrified about 2 years from now. DS is so wonderful with few behavior issuses and nothing major or overly consistent but what will happen in 2 years?!?! I am worried and I am worried that we won't handle it well.

You will grow and adjust with your son. As things come up, you make new rules and learn how to handle each new behavior. You are great parents now and will continue to be!

some advice my mother inlaw gave me. Just be the best mom you know how to be. each parent has their own style. Just stay consistant in routine and disapline and your son will turn out great.

Oh fine. He had a few acquired behaviors we did not like when we got back but thankfully they did not last. I know he is his own kid. :)
