he got into a fight at school last nite and may be put on probation. his mom never gives him anything for birthdays or christmas,he hardly goes over there and when he does she acts like a best friend instead of a parent,he drinks over there(dont know if she lets him)hes had sex over there. anyway, he is failing evry class and has to make up a class fromlast year(in 10th grade) im concerend he may not graduate at all.my sister in law told me to stay out of it and let his mom and dad sit down with him and talk( im just concerend about him)they have already had this talk with him.i dont quite know what she meant by stay out of it.i told her i just want him to graduate.he lives with me fulltime anyway.she said she had stepkids and did everything for them and they dont like her and it caused stress for her marriage,so it would be better if i didnt get involved..but im taking care of him,does no one see that.

Well I have a different opinion since he is living with you. I think you need to step up as his "parent" but together with his father. Maybe he also needs counseling but you 2 need to come together for his sake.
