I have a great relationship with my teenage stepson. I am just worried about when he returns from the odd visit to his mom. He lives with us permanently with visits to her every couple of weeks. A couple of times now he has become very clingy to me (not dad) when returning. I know my home is more stable and I know the affection is more natural (not in a nasty way but I know it is). Could it be he needs reassurance, is this normal? Or does he need to talk to someone about what is causing the clingy behaviour?
