  • Sit down with your boyfriend and agree on some house rules. Post the house rules visibly in your home and tell the cousin you expect anyone in your home to abide by those rules.

  • tell your bf to talk to him, its your bf's family member and as a 13 yr old boy, i dont think he will listen to you, no offense, nothing to do with you its just well im sure he would listen to your bf more because not only is he family but im assuming he looks up to him. Have your bf sit down with him and say, we love having you over here, we really enjoy your company, just not your attitude. If you want to grow up and have people respect you you need to respect them. If he still doesnt stop, use the then dont come over anymore if you cant stop threat. Good luck!

  • Make sure your bf is doing fun things with him too and not just expecting him to watch TV or keep to himself.

  • I agree with bobbysqurl, let him know that u don't his attitude and everyone will get along better without it. I have a stgrson like that and he can make me so, MAD.
