Hello, I just joined and I am so glad there is a group like this. I have been married for 5 years and it's a second marriage for both of us. My husband has an 11 year old son who in the five years I have been in his life has only had one play date. He has no friends and spends all his time alone. He is a difficult child to like because he constantly corrects everyone and doesn't know how to interact with people. He acts like he knows it all and can be very rude. At heart he is a sweet kid and I think with some help from his parents he could correct this behavior and have a much happier life but at least his father refuses to correct him. He insults his sister and step sister (My daughter) all day long and when they don't want him around or are mean to him my husband has no problem correcting them. I was teased as a child and when I realized why, I changed and so did my life for the better. I would love for him to be more social and happier but his dad either doesn't want to see it or he refuses to see it. Any ideas?
