Change in behaviour !

My son is now 4 years, and lately his behaviour has changed towards me. In the day time he is crying for me while I am at work, but when I get home from work he seems to show alot of anger towards me. Everything I seem to do is not right then he tells me he is angry with me and I must appologise towards him. This goes on the whole night. He does not want to leave my side for one minute, and wants me to always carry him. I cant understand when I am not with him, then he wants me, but when I am with him then he fights all the time with me.

Is my child looking for attention, or is this natural for a 4 year old ??

This is not the usual behaviour of a child of this age. Your son is feeling very insecure and is seeking attention. Is his father away at present? There must be some reason why he has started to behave like this. If you can't find the reason, it would be best to ask a child psychologist to see him.
