So my step son has no manners. For some reason I guess I never picked up on it. Since he never really talked to me he always went to his dad. Well this weekend he started talking to me. But never once said a please or a thank you, and would constantly ask for things out of laziness. Like can you get my cup? which was 3 feet away. (no i didnt get it) But what really irks me. I went out and bought him a bunch of new summer clothes, and flip flops and tennis shoes. I noticed hes had the same shoes since the beginning of the year. So I got home and showed him everything. And I didnt even get a thank you. Needless to say when my DH asked if my SS was able to take his new tennis shoes home. I told him no, they are for our house. Had I gotten even a thank you I might have given it a second thought. But he treats his stuff like crap, heck, I have told DH my SS is no longer allowed to play my Wii. Now is it wrong to feel wierd disciplining my SS, my DH says hes my son to, but Idk, I feel odd. I mean I have scolded him a few times, but it feels wierd. IS this normal?
