I have a beautiful son who is 3 years old, will be 4 next month. My boyfriend and I have been together about a year now. He has a 10 year old son and a 5 year old daughter. He gets his kids every weekend. When they come over, my son runs up and says "hey Jake!, hey Ashley". His son will tell him hi, but his daughter just glares at him, literally ignoring every time he says hello, since he repeats himself waiting for her to say hi. I tell her, "why are you ignoring him, say hello and be polite." she finally will muster up a hi, but its very cold. Everything is a problem when they come around, she doesn't want him playing with her, she tries telling him what to do, she literally won't even sit next to him in the car without throwing a fit. My boyfriend doesn't even notice most of the time the rude things she says or does, but when I bring it up there is little to no discipline. His son is a little older and not so rude, but we have had problems with them as well. I'm at a loss, I don't know what to do. Please, any advice would be appreciated!

Have you tried talking to the kids straight forward and say something like, is there a reason you don't like to be around my son, how would you like if you were treated that way? IDK, maybe have your son make a card or drawing or perhaps buy special presents just for the other kids? Maybe buy a game just for the 2 little kids to play together? You said your boyfriend doesn't discipline them for their behavior, would it be OK for you to do it? Good luck, maybe if all else fails let your son have a friend over on those weekends and that way the other kids will see him having fun with his friend and want to join in, or at least he won't care about your boyfriends kids not being very nice to him.
