Dealing with disrespect
Hi, I am new to ST and fairly new Step Dad. My stepson who is 8 hasnt grown up with a male figure in his life. He has the knowledge that when he is bad or disrespectful if he throws a few tears and breaks down 90% of the time all is forgiven, then play on repeat. When i try to correct him and tell him he has to be respectful of his morher and i, its I that gets the third degree and the lectures that i shouldnt do it. Am i wrong for standing up for my wife and myself by telling him he shouldnt talk like he does to us?
