SS12 very odd clingy behavior
Now MOST kids get to a age where privacy and friends become more important than parents. I remember at a pre-teen/teen spending hours in my room talking on the phone/reading/watching tv/playing video games or hanging out with my friends. I have waited 6 LONG years for this to finally happen with SS12 BUT if anything hes gotten more clingy/dependent on DH when he's over. Which by the way is 40 percent of the time. SS12 has a older brother who was not like this. The older brother would have friends over, go over for sleep overs could entertain himself in his room. SS12 NEVER goes in his room except to sleep. Never reads/plays by himself. The only thing he will do by himself is games on his phone or play with the dog but needs to do both in whatever room DH is in or the main living room which is the main hub of the house to say. The few friends he does have SS has no interest in having them over. We have asked. When SS is over if I want to talk to DH without SS looming over listening in I have to try to either stay up past midnight as thats the time they BOTH go to bed or try and grab DH's ear first thing in the morning before SS gets up.
Anyone else ever had this problem and what age can I expect some relief?
