Our expert says:
Its hard to guess the significance of your son's reluctance to return to his mom. Maybe in some way you have indicated to him that you are reluctant for him to go ; maybe he is not happy with her. Your example showing he was just as eluctant when going back to mom from your sister, suggests this is more a reluctance to be with mom than a reluctance to leave you. Is it possible to gently talk with him, at a neutral time, and early in his time with you, about WHY he doesn't want to go back to mom ? Ask what he most likes about beijng with mom, and what he most dislikes. IF the problem continues to suggest the possibility of something unpleasant happening there, maybe arrange for him to see a child psychologist who has ways to explore these things with him, without alarming him.
