My grandson's morphed into a rude brat and his parents can't cope | The Sun

DEAR DEIDRE: MY 13-year-old grandson has morphed from being a lovely boy to a rude teen.

He says he hates his parents and has run away a couple of times.

He wants to go and live elsewhere and the only way he will stay at home is if his parents do what he wants.

This means no chores, coming and going as he pleases and dropping out of school whenever he fancies.

I’m his 62-year-old grandmother.

My son and daughter-in-law have tried so much to help and ask him why he is playing up. His answer is always “because he can”.

It’s putting a lot of strain on everyone, as nothing is enough for him.

DEIDRE SAYS: Keep in mind that it’s normal to push boundaries while growing up.

It’s also important to remember that hormones can impact a child’s behaviour.

It might be helpful to speak to his school about what’s going on. He may be being bullied.
