Hi! My eldest son (he is 12), watched with me one series of Supernatural, and he really liked Dean, he began to imitate it. By the way, his name is also Dean.
He became rude, very confident, and laughed at his younger brother that he is too sensitive.
Will it pass, or should I intervene? For the new year, he asked for a machete and a leather jacket.

Hello @AmberP, thanks for sharing! It sounds like you are in a bit of a difficult situation. I am wondering if you have had a chance to discuss your son's liking of Dean and asking him about why he would like a machete and leather jacket? It can be good for children to have role models and favourite characters, so it might be worthwhile discussing some of this with him. It might also be a good chance to have a discussion with him about the way he treated his younger brother and how that made his brother feel. I hope that this helps

He likes this character because he is strong and confident in himself. Everything got better after he saw that the older brother always protects the younger one in the series, and he doesn't watch the series with me anymore.
