    My son is 5 and when i take him to his dads he throws scary tantrums.Once he ran away from me and his grandma and ran to the intersection, me and my daughter chasing him, and once crawling to my boyfriends gas pedal and wouldnt let go.He is terrified of his dad, but after i leave is usually fine. Lately i have been been staying with him to visit his dad. I dont understand he does love his dad. Is he just hooked on me?? or used to being babied by me, since his dad is very stern on him? or is it hate he has for his dad, because his dad has never been there for him.
