Scenario: Step dad rarely says anything to step son other than to tell him to do something.Take out the trash.Close the door.Put your plate away.Pick up your stuff.
And he says it just like that,simple phrases or commands.The step son is a tween.The step dad never says hello to him,never speaks to him and even seems to pretend to not hear him when step son asks a question.
Mom finally has enough when step dad tells the son to turn off the a/c in his room when it was hot.Mom waits till the son leaves the room and then she tells the step dad that shes tired of him treating her son that way and if he doesnt love them both (mom and stepson) then he can leave.She says that she wants him to be part of her sons life,not just a person in the house that orders him around.She says, you have to earn the right to tell him to do stuff,earn his respect,pat him on his back once in awhile,ask how you doin buddy,show he cares.The boy is sad
