Step son walks around in his underwear in front of my daughters and guests...am I wrong for thinking this is NOT ok?
My 11 year old step son walks around in his underwear in front of my daughters and any guests that come in the house. I am completely bothered by this and have asked him numerous times to put shorts on or at least a shirt. . He wears boxer briefs (and nothing else) around the house like it is regular clothes. Sits on the couch in his underwear, sits at the dinner table at dinner time in nothing but underwear, watches tv on the couch with people in the room...everything in his undewear...just his briefs, no shirt..nothing. I am not his mother and I have not been around since he was a baby. I have 12 and 13 year old daughters and just feel this is completely inappropriate considering the blended situation. When my daughters friends come over, I ask him to put clothes on and he throws a fit and says...tell them to go to their house. It drives me nuts. I do not want to see him sitting around in his underwear either. I am totally uncomfortable with it. My signifigant other thinks this child can do no wrong, so anything associated with him is ok. I have explained to him that it is not just the two of them, but my children as well and I would appreciate it if he put some clothes on. He tells me that I am being ridiculous. Sitting at the dinner table with him in his underwear with no shirt on is just unerving. (He is over weight and sadly that makes it worse as "boy boobs" at the table is just too much to deal with. I think it is beyonfd inappropriate and just not acceptable with teen girls in the home. Especially when they have friends over, it is embarassing. What are your opinions on this. Would you just sit back and allow it or am I being over reactive.
