Calling all Boy Parents (or parents of possible psychopaths...which are generally males, right?)...I need some advice!
Matt has started this new thing where when he gets upset about something, he just shuts down completely.
He won't speak.
He won't look at us.
He won't answer us.
He has this defiant little look on his face and just.shuts.down.
It is driving Husband nuts.
My gut instinct is that he's trying to get attention and that I need to ignore him.
It worries Husband. He wants to know if this is "normal." He keeps trying to reason with him (for like 3.2 seconds...after all, he's no idiot) while I walk away.
So, is it normal?
