Why doesn't my 8 year old son like me or even listen to me when I tell him to do something or ask him? He listens to his father but not his mother

How is communication between you and their father? Could it be, even without you noticing, that your husband talks down to you, or possibly degrades women in any kind of way at all. Children can pick up on things a lot more then we know and if even a little bit it seems like you and their father are not equal in authority, then they will only obey the one in complete control. Maybe you and hour husband should talk about that and think of a way you can start working together more on decisions. Hope this helps, I could be wrong completely this is just what I thought of, good luck in finding something that helps!

How does his father treat you? How much time do you spend doing things with him that he enjoys? Talking with eye contact? Listening to him?
