Our expert says:
The "silent treatment" only works if you allow it to, and if you show signs of being upset by it. It you go silent too, or chat away as though you don't even notice that he's being silent, it spoils all the fun of the silent one.
YOu've already offered him the adult option of talking like adults about whatever's still troubling him, and apparently he didn't accept the invitation.
Its not that you're being impatient, but that he is apparently more capable of being childish, sulky and petulant than you thought. But stop showing any evidence of being bothered by it, and there'll be nothing more for him to gain by continuing this.
