My husband and 19 year old son seem to have absolutely no relationship. (My husband adopted my kids) I’ve been urging them for years to go do stuff together, whatever. 2 weeks ago, our counselor suggested they go somewhere together... and that my husband express (in sandwich format) that he’s proud of him but concerned about X key areas and let him know we are here to help him move forward if he finds himself unsure of going w to do so.
My husband isn’t much of a talker...but the relationship between them versus that of my husband and daughter is obviously very different. I believe this is NOT “to blame” but definitely part of our bigger issues here too.
How can I help? Why is this so hard for them? Why do you suggest?
