How to bring SS back down to earth?
My oldest SS is constantly talking about what he wants. He wants laptops, Apple Watch, AirPods ect... he asked his mom for a $600 for his birthday and she got it for him. He wants all this expensive stuff and she just gets him whatever he wants.
We don't work like that. Well I don't anyway. DH is getting disgusted with his behavior. SS doesn't want to do anything. He doesn't want to clean or walk the dogs or anything. He's 13 and should be wanting to earn money to buy the things he wants but he just thinks things should be handed to him and he doesn't have to lift a finger. I got into a car accident and DH was tending to me DJ we told him he needs to walk the dogs and he sighed and said "I'm tired! I played baseball today. Can't you guys do it?" He has zero empathy for anyone else. It's ALL about him because mom has made him the golden child. None of the other kids in the house are like this. My oldest is only 14 but she works babysitting and she's applying to bag at the grocery store near her dad. My youngest SS is always asking to do extra chores to earn money abd he's very very thoughtful and hrklfuk. He never complains. My 11 year old doesn't initiate but she does her chores with no issue. But oldest SS literally does nothing!
so DH wants to snap him out of this. It's going to continue at mom's house and there's nothing we can do about that but what can we do here to help him get out of this entitled mindset?
