Pediatrics
In brief: Common
If it bothers you respond as you will.
Kids usually treat their parents as slaves by default, they learned so as infants, and the first time away brings out this primitive behavior in some. Infants get all their needs met without having to work for it (more than fussing) If you want adult behavior from him, require it. Cut off funds or whatever your slave status is giving him.He may grow up.
