New here Seeking advice on Bratty SS
Ok I’ve been scoping out this site for sometime and see that some people have the same problem that I do. I’ve read the posts about adult SKs that “fail to launch”. Well my SK is only a pre-teen but is so Clingy and needy to BF it’s driving me crazy. I pushed to get SK Signed up for soccer(only sport SK likes) in hopes that would allow SK to make friends and not be so needy for BF. Well basically that backfired on me. SK insisted BF go to every game and practice and would have a total meltdown if BF said he had to miss one. By the way he never did because SK made such a Stink. Eventually BF was Confronted by the coach to be the assistant coach since he was always around helping. So now I see BF even less and we are limited on going away as BF needs to make sure he’s available for weekly practice and games every weekend even when it’s BM’s parenting time! Mind you BM was ALWAYS at every game/practice too(joy) so he was never alone without a parent but SK did not care he wanted daddy there too. I Realize by reading some of these post some SK’s Never really outgrow the needy stage. My question is IF stepkids do Eventually grow out of this needy clingy daddy stage, and SOME must, what age Typically does this happen? I’m not looking for the extreme age but “normal” age kids start becoming more into hanging out with friends and less wanting to stay attached at the hip to daddy.
