My eldest DS turns 10 in August and I have nothing but dramas with him when it comes to my husband. He doesn't listen and acts like a toddler whenever he's told to do something by DH and it irritates me to no end. I have spoken to him about his behaviour (and even took a triple P parenting course) but nothing seems to work. DS says that he just wants me and his father back together again (been 5 years since I was with the kids father) and I've had lengthy discussions about this issue with him. DH wants me to smack him and I refuse to which irritates DH because he thinks that Corey deserves to be punished in that way. It plays a big role in our relationship and I feel that I am caught in the middle all the time. I don't approve of Corey's behaviour and it makes me angry that there is nothing I can say to this child that will make him understand his behaviour is not acceptable.
Any advice is greatly appreciated
