Most children are more connected to the mother than the father, but that can change. So often (maternal instinct) the mother can shut the father out and it all about between "mother and child." Of course the mother doesn't mean too, but, she is the main caregiver raising this child. It sounds like your child simply misses you. The father obviously is awkward and doesn't know how to entertain the child or probably even play correctly. If you want a better relationship between the 3 of you it's important you spend more time together (all 3 of you.) Go to the park, let your child play and both of you be part of his playtime. Teach dad how to interact with his son. Go out to MacDonald's, etc., and fill the quality of time you have with your son with laughter and "getting to know dad more." It just takes patience and consistency. It doesn't matter if you are living together, married, separated or even divorced. The child should get the best from both of you. Good luck Marcy

How do you make your mom happy she is stressed at your brother and is about to cry?

You should be very proud of yourself for asking this question as it shows you are mature for your years and love your mother very much. You did not mention if your father was around or you just lived with your mother and brother. If your father is around you should talk to him and ask him to step in and help your mother control your brother's action. If your father does not live with you then sit down alone with your mother and tell her to phone mental health with her problems regarding your brother and they will help her find the correct place to seek help. You also have the right to see your family doctor on your own accord and express your concerns to him or a priest or pastor. You also could speak to a relative such as a grandparent; aunt; uncle that you trust to see if they could help.
