my 10yr old boy has started showing a bad side to wards me. his attitude is terrible and he never does what i ask him, even when I'm polite as can be with him.. he just doesn't respond to me at all.. i give him loads of attention and show him how special he is to me but lately nothing works..my husband says I'm to soft with him and i allow him to get away with to much..
we have both gone through some rough changes over the past 4 to 5 yrs. his dad and i split when he was very young and have both now remarried. i moved with my boy to Scotland to be with my husband as he's in the royal navy and my lad gets to see his dad and his family on a regular bases.. however things haven't been a bed of roses for any of us and I'm worried he's pulling away from me.. is it all just growing pains, i feel like i'm letting him down..
