Customer Question

I am on my second marriage his third. The children living with us his 15 yr old and my 21 yr old who just graduated from post secondary. The chores for both boys are cutting lawn, blowing snow in winter, clean bedrooms and they each have there own bathroom to clean. My son does all that is asked and more usally something for my husband to show appreciation. Like washing his vehicle. His son I have concerns for his grades are great in the 90's and he never does homework. He has to be told to do his chores every single time gets mad and once when his dad was not around called me a bitch. When I speak to my husband regarding his son he yells instead of handing out a punishment. The boy is on computer on weekdays from 4:10pm to bedtime at 10:30 on weekends from 10:30am till midnite. My husband gets mad at me for saying anything I don't yell I am a talker. I am ready to pull my hair out summer holidays are coming he will be on comuter all day I offered to do things with him what can I do?

We are on a second marriage. He has a son 15 and I have a son 21 living in our family home. We have given our son's chores cutting lawn snow blowing the driveway keeping there rooms tidy and clean and they each have threre own bathroom to clean. My son does his share of the chores but I have to tell his son everytime to go out and do his share of the lawn mowing, snowblowing, his room and to clean his bathroom. This has been going on for 4 years now. His son gets home from school on weekdays at 4 gets on the computer gaming till 10:30 and on weekends he is on the computer from 10:00 in the morning till midnite. I tried to talk to my husband telling him this was not normal to have a 15 year old being on the computer pretty much 24/7. My husband got mad at me said I am always picking on his son but I only ask him to do the chores he was asked to do and I told my husband that I would of never allowed my son to be on the computer for hours on end. Is being on a computer for roughly 61 hours per week gaming normal or how should I handle this situation if it in not normal?
