Soooo... I have an 8 yr old stepson who's mother passed away about a year ago. His behavior is a little different from his peers, in that he is very whiny and has to get his way all the time. He believes everyone is against him. If he says something funny and we laugh, he immediately breaks down, cries. He also interrupts adult conversation and is very clingy to me. He doesn't like for me and his dad to kiss or hug. Our affection toward each other has made him so upset that he has actually thrown things and yelled. But he loves me. Sometimes I think I'm the queen of the world. Believe it or not he's a great kid but you never know when something might go wrong. I try to get his dad to take him to counseling, but I feel that he thinks I'm being mean or thinks there is nothing wrong with his sons behavior... I'm struggling here, I love my family but it's super frustrating... Any advice would be greatly appreciated!
