Question am I expecting to much?
I am married to this wonderful guy who treats me great. The problem is his brat son who is 13. I'll go into more details on another post but just looking for a answer to this question.
At what age can I reasonably expect SS13 to be responsible for giving his dad b-day/father's day/ x-mas gifts without me doing and paying for everything? Now I will add SS13 brags that he has over $1000 at BM's house that he's saved up from b-days/x-mas. No he's not lying as BM complains all the time she wants to put it in the bank but SS13 refuses. For the last 6 years I've paid for and wrapped gifts from SS13 for his dad. This year since SS13 has so much money I decided SS13 can pay for his gift for his dad. DH agreed and even picked out a $20 movie SS13 could buy. When presented with this SS REFUSES to bring over a dime of his money saying hes "saving" it for a $1500 computer he wants. Not sure is SS13 is lying about the computer or just being selfish with his money and wants all to himself. Since SS13 refuses to spend ANY of his money from BM's house I offered to have SS13 do chores to make money to buy the gift. Nope lazy SS13 would not do this either. I even told SS13 he could make something and he refuses.
Am I asking to much from a 13 to pay for his own gift for DH? DH is going to be VERY hurt if he does not get a gift from SS13. Should I just pay for something as I did in the past? Honestly I could careless about the spoiled brat BUT I'm thinking of my husband. Thoughts??
