My 13 yo step-son is an emotional wreck. He CRIES everyday about something. Often uncontrollable things like rain. He constantly complains, is self-centered and stingy. He does not observe personal space standing uncomfortably close to people, cannot handle alone time or silence. He is not at all self-entertained and will constantly bother other family members to not be alone. He has violent temper tantrums where he will punch things if he doesn't get what he wants (like a 4 yo would do). He is really a mama's boy and is affraid of everything. His mom still cuts his meat and doesn't make him do anything for himself so when he is with us he acts like a baby.
The other 13 yo I know are not like this (nor is his younger sister). I think he needs councilling, but his parents think he is fine. Do other 13 yo boys you know behave this way or should I keep telling my husband the kid needs councilling?
