My son is 23 years old. his father passed away when he was 6 months old. At the age of 4 I re-married and have 3 more children with my husband. My elder son rejected my husband from the age of about 17. Although my husband raised him and taught him everything in life. He always treated him like his own. I don't know where my son's aggression come from. My in-laws always treated him as my husband's son... never make any difference between him and the other children. During the past Father's day, he did not even talk to his dad. I don't know how to handle the situation. I love them both and my husband is not really aware of the problem. I'm quite heartbroken. Please help...

Thank you Michelle! I think I should try that. I will arrange that early next week, because I need to get clearance on the situation. It is really tearing me apart. Thank you for the help.

Have you sat down with your son and talked? Listen to what he says to you. It may be that he is wondering what his Father was like and it's hit him that he will never know. Let him mourn the Father that he never met.
Maybe even see if he would to get some grief counseling or talk to someone about what he's going through. I know most teenage boys don't like to talk but he may want to talk to someone outside the family.
