That's frustrating, I'm sorry he's giving you such a hard time. I would probably limit the phone calls also, possibly even taking a break for a couple of days.

What about taking him to the park or inviting some friends over, even if he doesn't want them there?

Wow! sounds like u have ur hands full. I had a similar problem with my daughter now age 11 after she would spend time at particular friends house. Same idea they gave her alot of extra attention, and lets face it we're old hat and don't always have that kind of time to just dote on one child like grandma can! Why don't u plan a special weekend trip and let him help decide where he'd like to go.
