I have been finding Parker's interactions with different people so interesting. He is so different with my mom than with Tyler's parents and I can't put my finger on why.

Parker plays with my mom like she is an equal. They were running around the park laughing and carrying on this elaborate plot between a dragon and its captive. It was so much fun and full of adventure. But he has also been quite the rabble-rouser with her here. He intentionally does things to see how she (or we) will react.

I am talking about aggressive behavior, major fit throwing, whining up the wazoo, and rudeness. Whatever the cause or reason behind it, a solution needs to be found. This weekend I will be creating a classroom-type reward system for good behavior. Wish me good luck.
