My stepsons (aged 12 and 10) have been here for the past 2 weeks and Rueben will not stop jumping up at the eldest one. I just can't figure it out!

He doesn't do it to anyone else at all. Even when people come to visit, Rueben gets excited but very rarely jumps up at anyone.

Can anyone give me any insights as to why he's doing this and what I can do to stop him?

Does your stepson play with him and encourage him to jump up when playing?? Theo doesn't jump up to anyone when they come to the house but will always jump up at me when I get home, but I've put it down to the fact that I encourage him to jump up to me at times, especially when there's a good song on the radio so we can have a good dance :oops:

The older boy been throwing a ball for Reuben or anything of that ilk?

Its probably happened in play at some point and your stepson hasn't chastised in the "right" way, which is pretty hard for a 12 year old anyway.

Catch him in the act and read him his rights. A good well timed telling off should fix it.
