I've been separated from my sons Dad for 4 years. My son seems to habour alot of anger towards me and his step dad. Everything I try to do, is offenregarded with some off the cuff remark. I ask my son if he would treat anyone else like he treats me, and this seems to postpone the comments, but not very long, I'm trying to teach my son accountability, for example, if he doesn't get his work done, there are consequences. ( computer taken away, no tv for a period of time, etc... privilages) I heard him talking to his dad says ' I couldn't go because mom made me do work" He blames me for everything bad that seems to happen. I bought him a new bike this year after he did great in school. Its been sitting in the garage all summer. Every evening I ask " Want to get out, ride the bike, play catch, go to the park, anything?" and its always "maybe tomorrow" granted my son is not a sports kid at all, and have evolved to more of a couch potato then I like, but when it comes to doing anything with me. He is indecisive and uninterested. I don't know what to do. He only likes to be with his dad as its 100% play time.
