DH repeating the same mistakes
For background info...my DH has three sons. The older two are majority PAS’d out. They will have nothing to do with him. They are rude nasty entitled jerks who treated him like an atm. And DH allows it. He kissed their butt, allowed them to rule the roost until they finally lost every ounce of respect for him because he has zero backbone. Honestly we lucked out when they stopped coming over.
So far YSS12 still comes around. I see hints that BM is beginning the PAS but I expect we may get one more year before he is fully gone. However, instead of DH learning from his mistakes and actually being a parent to this last chance kid, he is afraid to open his mouth and parent him or YSS will “stop talking to him too”. Good lord...let’s just cut to the chase and end things with YSS now instead of being out through the same torture from the older two. Lord knows at his rate, YSS will learn that DH has zero backbone and lose an respect for him too.
Luckiky YSS isn’t a terrible kid. He is just in that “know it all” preteen stage where he is annoying as hell. Give it another 6-12
months and I predict BM will have him acting just as nasty as the older two.
