I am a mother of 4, ages 15-23. I divorced their father in 2001, and 1 1/2 yrs ago remarried. Trouble is, the man I married never had any kids of his own, and doesn't understand "kids these days." He's rather "old school" and feels that kids should be outside all the time,and doesn't get why my 15 yr old son wants to be on the computer. I moved my kids from their home in the "burbs" after I divorced, and now live in the country, and there are really no kids close by for my son to hang out with. I can't seem to make my husband understand that things are different than when he was a kid. Also, being a teenage boy, my son doesn't always care too much that the grass needs to be cut, or the garbage needs to go out. All normal stuff for a kid, but not in my husbands eyes. He thinks it's just MY son being lazy and disrespectful. Because he doesn't agree with the way my son spends his free time, and feels that he's lazy,my husband shows my son little respect. No matter how hard I try to get thru to him, he refuses to listen. This is very difficult for me and I don't know what to do! Anyone have any advise...PLEASE???????
