My SS is 13 years old, and since his Dad gave me a ring 2 years ago, he's wanted nothing to do with me (which has caused MAJOR problems with hubby and I)...I feel we shouldnt have to do "special" things for him to come over, but when he goes snowmobiling with hubby or we go camping is the only time we see him, and I also feel that its wrong to have him pick and choose who he wants to be with (hubby and almost 4 yo SD, but not our girl of 15 months or me)..he gets all or not at all. It upsets me that hubby's relationship has suffered because of SS's attitude, but this is what I feel is right. Easter weekend we went camping as is our tradition, and SS was a wise ass and smart aleck, and hubby didnt do anything. I talked to him about it soon after SS did these things (SEVERAL times over the weekend) and hubby said "He's just being a 13 year old." I disagree...I think his disdain for me is reaching new heights. I just thought of telling hubby if he doesn't control SS better, I was gonna start telling him when he does something like this "Thats uncalled for". What do you think? Any ideas would be welcome.
