My fiancé s 10 yr old son is allowed to stretch out in church pew and sleep during entire service .. This seems so disrespectful to me, I have offered to go in cry room with him , and even then his dad allows him to take ipod in there and play games. I have spoken with the son about showing respect in Gods house , but does not care what I have to say, and his dad thinks God would not care if his child did any of these things in church .. I am growing angry and resentful what domi do

Thank you for your response .. i have spoken to my partner about it actually, and he does not have a problem with his son doing this.. he encourages his son actually.. says God doesnt care how you recieve the word. I am not a religious person either , as a matter of fact I go to support my partner and I find it peaceful dont get me wrong.. my partner is so strict in some areas , and then something like this , that simply teaches respect .. nothin.. blows my mind

I'm not religious but even I know it's disrespectful to be lounging around in church. By 10 he should know better.
You need to have more of a discussion with your partner. If you are planning on having children with him then you need to know what type of parenting style he has. From the sounds of it, he doesn't like to be a parent and discipline his child. I would be really thinking about the future.
