My boyfriend and I have been living together for over a year. He has an 8 year old daughter and I have a 6 year old son. My son is independent and enjoys playing by himself at times. She constantly wants him to play with her and it becomes a huge problem in our home. My boyfriend thinks they should play together all the time and that my son is being mean if he doesn't want to play with her. I personally do not think it is normal for kids to want to play together all the time. My son does want to play with her sometimes but not every minute they are together. I don't think I should force him to play with her. I am open to any advice or opinions on what is normal and how I should handle the situations.
