: I've got a real problem, I'm with this guy, he's got a son by someone else. He says I'm treating his 4 yr. old like he's 7. I've never had kids, I'm only 20 and don't know anything about being a parent. My bf sits on the computer all day (while I'm at work) and lets his son do what ever he wants, including hit my puppy. This child is very smart. I don't know what to do.
: When I get on to his son for anything, I get yelled at for treating him like he's older than he is. I don't know how to be a parent, I don't even know where to began to learn how. All of this childs life he was able to do anything he wanted. But now that his mom and dad split up, I'm trying tp teach him how to treat animals, what is alright to do and what isn't. What do I do?! Help me!

I totally agree with what Beth has said. Great advice!
Also children from a young age need to learn to respect animals and all living things, otherwise it can escalate later on in life and you can end up having a real problem on your hands.
