Well that child will lash out soon enough if he is not treated like a boy of his age. In the end some of his friends will laugh at him and in the end he will become embarassed and lash out. It is difficult to know when you should change the way you treat your children. Give his son more responsibility around the house and give him some more freedom to grow up. Your partner will soon see that he is holding him back and realise that he has to change.
