My friend and I both work together and hang out quite a bit durning the week after work as well. We hve a lot in common, share the same values and are both in our late 20's with one child, so we get along great.
He is a single dad and has custody full time. The problem is I can't tolerate his son very well. He is 8 years old and has a horrile attitude, swears, throws tantrums and doesn't respect anyone it seems. I hate to say I can't stand the kid, but I don't know how else to put it He doesn't discipline really at all because he ays he feels guilty for being gone to work all day.
Other than not hanging out with my friend (which I don't want to have as an option) what can I do? I don't know if I should give him advice or what to do.
Any ideas or thoughts please ?

how can you say you have the same values when he doesn't even discipline his kid to the point he's rotten? This is not the kids fault it's the parents.
