do NOT try to discipline him- that job should strictly be up to dad...I KNOW i will get lots of gruff for that one-
Not going to give you gruff for that but I disagree. My step daughter is also 15 and lives with us full time. She is generally a good kid but if I let her ...she'd walk all over me. And well ..that just isn't going to happen. My other half works until 7pm at night so I am home with my step daughter from 2pm till 7pm. It's my job to make sure her homework is done and chores are done. And yes I discipline which is along the lines of taking away the phone or computer. I'm not going to wait 5 hours until her 'real' parent is home to discipline. I believe when your children are in the care of someone else -whether it be a stepparent, grandparent, or babysitter - they need to listen to that person and show respect. Period.
