My son & I have lived with my partner for 4 years. My son is 17, and whilst he is at college we turn the internet off at 10.30pm & the Xbox is off during the day ( he can still use his laptop). He is now on college break till September and has asked if the curfew can be lifted. I said fine but my partner has said no, not until he gets a summer job! I feel I am piggy in the middle and it's putting a strain on my relationship with my partner because he feels we are ganging up on him. My son nags me constantly about it. His dad has said that he's got a job for him in the pipeline, but he's been saying this for weeks! I hate feeling like I don't have a voice but then I don't want to argue with my partner. My son stayed at his grandmas & grandad for a week and loved it coz there was no curfew and chores to do. It upsets me when he says he wants to live with them. I feel that my partner is driving my son away and I'm starting to resent him. I just don't know what to do. He has already driven my other son away. I'm at my wits end. My son has just told me that he doesn't feel welcome here and he wishes it was just the two of us again. Tbh I'm staying to feel the same way. 😟

Do you ask him what he thinks? I'm struggling to see how it works.
You say yes then dh tries to overrule you?
Compromise on an extra hour??
