My 6yo stepson is playing with a boy who's a little older from our neighborhood. I know that he LOVES when this particular boy comes over to play, he lights up when he comes to the door. HOWEVER, everytime he comes by, my ss starts being really bossy, annoying and downright mean to him. Luckily the other boy is older and will flat out say "Stop or I will leave", but my ss just keeps right on at it. It's nothing so major that I NEED to step in, but I can tell that his friend is getting tired of it and I'm afraid he won't come back one of these times! Is this the kind of lesson that he needs to learn on his own? Or should I step in and explain to him that he is going to have trouble making/keeping friends when he acts like such a brat to them?

He won't learn he's wrong unless someone tells him. His friend can just get annoyed an leave...but he may not learn the lesson cause he's young and may not understand. I would talk to him...and let him know if he wants to keep friends, he needs to treat them the way he'd want to be treated.
