Get so mad when someone tells them the truth. My aunt has been told for years that her son has issues with listening and to correct him yet she's has said year after year that he is just a child and to let him be.Well that was back in the toddler years,he then started being rude to his dad and sister but that was also ok because he was only 5 it went on and on and all she did was excuse him and protect him at age 14 he was doing heavy drugs and well now that he is prison which surprises none of us my aunt still refuses to say it was wrong of her to excuse him all those years.It was always ok for him to not listen be rude and do as he pleased it was always because he was little because he was a boy because his dad is a jerk.It never was her excusing.I truly stay out it but i don't get why she doenst get it.Is there any point now that he is in his 30's do you think he could change when he comes out or do you think he just needs to stay away from his mom.Answer Question

We have a very similar issue with a family member. The son is now 24 with 2 kids by different girls, no job, criminal record, he and the teenage wife live in Mom/Dads basement, refuse to have anything to do with their one year old, etc, etc....we all listened to years of he's just being a boy/ he has learning disabilities/ no one "gets" him....
Reality has hit my SIL, they are in process of custody battle for the baby and she is coming to grips with her part in creating this monster, sad to watch, but as family we will stand by her and BIL, but have decided on tough love for the nephew (and no contact).
