My 9 year old step son will cry the second you tell him something he doesn't like. And then he'll escalate the tantrum until we send him up to his room away from the family. He'll then return and start the whole scene all over again. We have him 50% of the time and can't talk to him mom about anything as she, too, is irrational and has the victim mentality. My husband and I are having a very hard time trying to deal with this. We've been married for 5 years and our step son has been doing this behavior on and off for all of those 5 years, but lately it's been so much worse. Can anyone offer any advice? Help! I'm losing my mind over this!
