My stepson is 8 years old. This last weekend when he wanted to jump on the trampoline, we said no because it was under 50 degrees outside and had been raining most of the day so it was damp and cold and not to mention after 8 o'clock so it was dark as well. We said no, and he ran off screaming " I hate yall. I hate it here and I'm never coming back!" My husband was so hurt by this, because he can't be a big part of his life, because his ex won't let him. She's married to a new man that his son is really clinging to, and the reason for the divorce was her lying and cheating. (so it wasn't like my husband was a horrible husband and is deserving this) Anyways, I ran after him threatening to spank if he EVER did that crap again.. and now because he knows it hurts his dad.. He does it everytime he doesn't get his way. Honestly I know kids do that, but I can't let him happen again, because my husband loves him so much. What do i doAnswer Question

Well your husband needs to tell him. I know that it hurts him but if he don't control it now. He will have alot of problems later. He knows how to hurt his father to make him give in. My So son does that all the time. You just have to be firm and say fine you won't have to come over anymore. Call his bluff. My SO son would threatening and everything else until his father finally told him that don't fly around here. He will learn and grow out of it. Well good luck. I hope that helps a little.
