I have been married almost 5 years, I have a SS 13 and SD 11. The mother gets them every other weekend for a long weekend, my DH and I are raising them the rest of the time. My SS and I used to be close -- I read him bedtime stories, we told each other we loved each other, hugs, etc. Since he turned 11 (and his mother got remarried a couple months ago also) I have noticed a profound change in his behavior. He won't speak to me or even look at me, if I ask him a direct question it's "Fine", "good" "ok". When he IS speaking to me, it's to be rude or sarcastic. Meanwhile, he thinks the sun rises and sets on his dad -- who lets him have unlimited screen time and rarely or never gives any consequences. He is a video game addict who plays games every waking moment that he isn't in school -- DH doesn't see anything wrong with this and tells me I'm not allowed to limit it. It makes me crazy. And it's heartbreaking to miss the wonderful little boy I once loved. He has turned hostile and ugly to me and except for me yelling at him one time that he was wasting his life playing video games, I have been nothing but loving and pleasant to him. This is making my life intolerable and I cry about it every day. Anybody else been through this? Did it get better? Help please!
