Zaba...well aware that the "gets what he wants" is part of the problem but he is not my child and i'm trying to guide my MIL without ending up telling her what to do.
Sounds as if he could do with less "things" and more time / attention.
You're in a very difficult situation, so all you can really do is more of the same. If you can keep trying to be a friend to him, you might find that with time, it will pay off. Hope so.
