My ten year old son can’t stand affection between his father and I
If I hug my husband, my son will come over after and hug me for longer. When he sees my husband kiss me, my son will glare at his father.
He will quietly make comments like “get away from my mother”. I have boundaries around our children, this is innocent pecks and hugs.
He groans when he hears his dad come home. He has told me he wishes that our family was just me, him and his little sister. I tried to get him to explain why he feels this way but he refused.
I have always been attentive and affectionate with my son. I reassure him all of the time that he will always be my baby and he means the world to me.
I spend more time with my kids then my husband (because of his work schedule) so it’s not him being neglected. My husband is the stricter parent but he’s never mistreated our son.
I’m scared that no matter what I do this won’t change. I feel lost and I’m stressed.
