A: Yes, it’s not worth having a boyfriend who doesn’t know how to respect your son. Since I don’t know the particulars (like if your boyfriend has children from a previous marriage or relationship, or if he has never been a parent), you could give him a chance to earn the right to be in a relationship with you and your son. This would requite the two of you to go to a marriage and family counselor to explain what the expectations are. If agrees to go, that’s a good start. If he doesn’t, it is a good indication you need to move on.
