Short background, i am seperated, ex is still a witness, but very weak, all my family and his very devout, I allow my younger brother to come once a week to study with my two boys 11+12. Which you might think is nuts, but I want more than anything to give them choice, and not to be in direct opposition to their father or other family.
Youngest son is a nightmare in the study..lol. And last week i said to him he does not have to have the study and I will speak to his dad about it if he wants to stop.
So he tells me that his dad sat him down and said to him "it's up to you, you can choose to listen and live, or do what you want and die"
More to it than that, but the age old threat of death if you do not behave.
Both my boys believe it's the truth, so far I have only encouraged them to question everything, and tried to provide alternative viewpoints. I am just fading so also need to be careful what I say.
But I am upset about this latest development and dont know what to say to my son to help him.
