Why is my son so needy?

He’s almost two years old and he always has to be holding my hand and being held and always wants to sit on my lap

    Well... he didn’t get there on his own.

    A child can show clinginess due to a fear of being away from their parents (separation anxiety) or because of stranger anxiety, where the fear is more about being around people the child doesn't know.

    He's not 'needy' - he just loves him mom.

    Because you shouldn't have made a child, you won't show the love and affection that a child should have, if you think he's needy.

    Many children are that way.  Just bear with him.  It will change.  At some point he will push you away.

    They can definitely be clingy at that age. It won't last forever, eventually he'll learn to play by himself more and won't need to be attached to you all of the time. Increased clinginess can also be a sign that he's going through a big developmental advancement, and might need a little extra cuddles and reassurance until he's through it.

    That's normal, he must find comfort in that.

    Children often become cling-ons around this age. It's normal. He will grow out of it.
