Bonding with husband’s three-year-old son is difficult — he's impossible

I am 33 and my husband is 36. I have a two-year-old daughter from a previous relationship, so I’m used to little children. My husband’s son is always falling over and just stares blankly if you tell him to do something.

He smashes and breaks things but my husband never tells him off.

I don’t know how to parent a child when I don’t know what his problem is.

DEIDRE SAYS: He has lived through his parents’ break-up and his dad marrying someone new who already has a child – a rival for adult affections.

He may be acting out his distress, or he may indeed have some impairment making life more difficult.

Tell your husband you two must agree boundaries for both kids and how you will enforce them.
Children develop at different rates but be firm you must talk to his doctor about an evaluation. Family Lives can give you ongoing support (familylives.org.uk, 0808 800 2222).
