My baby is not getting close to his grand parents because they are rude sometimes with him. His father is not here he is out of country since last 7 months. He miss him alot when he sees his cousins fathers. Now a days he cries many times a day. I am living in a joint family system and all the members are rude and harsh to him they show less affection and love to him. I have also have to bear their harsh words about my child and on my parenting .what should i do in this situation ?

I understand your concern. Age 2-3 is a difficult period. It is like the teenage phase actually. You will have to know that he is trying to assert his independence. He is learning to understand his own mind. So most of his actions may look rebellious. The word No will be most commonly used whether he means it or not. When he throws a tantrum remove him from the situation. Wait for him to calm down and explain that crying will not help. There are other ways to express emotions. You will have to play the role of both parents. Spend quality time with your child. Give full attention; tell stories- through stories you can teach values. Teach songs and engage him through the day with questions. This way you are constantly increasing your communication. You are creating your own comfort world with him. At his age he will cry a lot because that is the only way he knows to express. Understand why he is crying and help him resolve it. Here empathy is needed more than sympathy. When we can’t change a situation or person or surroundings we need to learn how to make the best of it. It is difficult but with a happy and positive mindset you can create a beautiful atmosphere for your son and you. All the best
