ok so I have a 2 1/2 yr old son and a 16 yr old. My 2 yr old is a bit of a difficult one, he hates change of any kind, he just doesnt deal very well with it at all. Just as an example he has been going to daycare 3 days a week for one and a half years now, and he still carries on in the mornings, cries etc, and o ne of the carers have to come a nurse him.
His father and I have just separated 2 months ago, which my 2 yr old actually seems to be handling it ok, as my ex and I are amicable, and both see him.
But my issues that I really need to deal with is
1. He still has a bottle before bed, he doesnt go to sleep having it, but wants it just before going to sleep.
2. He is not toilet trained at all, he just doesnt seem to get the idea of it.
3. He sleeps with me every night, when his father has him he sleeps with him.
So i am thinking i really have to just tackle one problem at a time. But I do know my ex will not follow through with anything I do, when he has him. He doesnt really care about any of the issues.
Is it really a issue that he still has a bottle at night?
So any advice on how to handle any of these issues would be great thanks.
