Okay, what's the deal with this? I babysit for the boys all day, 10 hours, and they are wonderful, loving, sweet, well-behaved, fun, easy. Mom gets home and before her purse has hit the table, at least one of the boys is whining, crying, misbehaving, or pitching a hairy fit.

I've heard the theory that they act that way in front of their mom b/c they are comfortable with her. I'm not sure what to make of this and think it is just as likely, if not more, that they are simply very p'd off at her for leaving them. I think that can be very scary and threatening for some children.
