I look after him the most, always do stuff for him, but yet he talks down to me so much. I can't stand bad manners and so react and then we have a huge row. Not when his father is at home though.
Noone sees how awful he is to me.! I know it takes 2 to make an argument and I could do better I accept, but it all starts from how he speaks/ respond to something. He wouldn't dare speak to his father the same.
Really hurts. His dad was never a hands on father ...in fact he didn't really want kids, so I'm the one who's done most of the caring. But this last year, being 12, he's gone against me and loving his dad lots more.
