He is now 13, I've known him since he was 7 and he is just so so so weird. I've tried everything to get him to break out of his shell, and be more talkative a friendly. He is very hard headed with everyone, even his father (which I doubt it's really even his son) (but thats a whole different story) and so now he's getting to be smart butted and rude and does not want to listen or obey...is as if u say something to him and he purposely does not listen to piss u off. I how ever put my foot down, this is my home and if u would like to be a part of it (which I want him to be) that's fine, but u will behave in a certain manner and if not, u r not welcome here. And so because he does not want to be repremanded of have rules he prefers to not come. So I've gotten to the point where i feel like, good, Im glad ur not coming, ur not my problem, but at the same time I feel bad, what do i do. My husband says, he's older now, and does not want to be here and bored, but i KNOW the real reason, and thats because i ride his butt about manners, listening, right thing to do, etc........sigh what do i do??????

"I COMPLETELY DISagree. A 13 Y/O boy needs his bio dad more than anything...he is only 13...he is not an adult & should not be treated like one"
My reasons for saying this were not what you think. I think he should not come over if he is going to be treated that way. I have 5 kids, and my Dh is a step dad to 4 of them. If he ever made them so uncomfortable they did not want to be around me then I would step up and say something to my DH. I have posted many times about how my kids come first my DH can be replaced or I can live without him. In this case dad doesnt seem to mind his son being treated this way. So it is probably best his son not come over.
