UGH!!! My step son has not seen his birth mother for 2-3years and now that he is turning 13 for the last three months I have told him to do something and he gets mad at me and then yells at me "Your not my mom" you do not tell me what to do. Oh how that cuts right through you. My husband does not make his son do what he should and he talk back to him all the time, sometimes just joking but at others it is not. So when I ask him to do something or tell him NO he cannot do that he gets all mad at me..UGH!!! the worst thing is that this child will not say he is sorry for anything does not matter if i tell him that he has hurt my feelings...
I would never have dreamed of telling my step parent "You are not my MOM or DAD"..Or just be so disrespectful to any adult.. at my age now I am still not as disrespectful to any adult.
Any advise is welcome..
