My step son has always been a little spoiled by his father, my husband, but has recently been ignorant and rude. We don't see him everyday or even every weekend. When we make the 6 hour trip to where he lives with his mother he is always very rude to me and my daughter. he is 18 and always whining that his father doesnt have money to buy him a new car, when he has a truck that just needs fixed up and he needs insurance which would take his fathers insurance plan up to 1200 a month. He has always had everything handed to him, like 500 dollars around christmas time so he could go to a BMX race, just so his mother didnt have to listen to him whine. But yet his mother doesnt want him to get a job yet because as soon as he would start a job his grades would drop, not to mention he is to worried about riding his dirt bike and his BMX bike. This past weekend he came down to help us move out of our old place and I told him it was cold so he needed a coat, well when we picked him up all he had a was hoodie, he had a cough and kept blowing his nose, now this is NOT the first time he has come around me and my daughter sick and frankly im sick and tired of always getting sick a few days after we come back home! I'm also 13 weeks pregnant so getting sick is just ridiculous not to mention when my 18 month old gets sick too! I don't know what I can do to make him understand that his attitude and his lack of responsibility is way past due! It doesnt really help much that his mother doesnt really care much about him. I have asked her when we have been in town to set up a drs appointment for him and when we took our daughter in we would take him to but she never does. This is just getting old he has had this cough for over a month and just when I get better he comes back around and I get slammed even harder! please help!
