Strangers compliment you on what a weII-behaved little boy you have. The company cannot believe that your little angel can sit through a three-course meal and behave like a proper lady. Then you are alone with him or her and it’s demon time! Child psychologist Dr. Heather Wittenberg agrees. She says that children are their “true selves’ with parents, Especially Moms. It takes energy to ‘be good’ and follow the rules -especially for young children-so when they get home, they let it all hang out. The good news is that they also save their deepest love and affection for Mom as well.
