and Daddy doesn't step in to help and isn't a help because he is always telling stepchild how smart and brilliant they are? (Granted, the kid is smart, but thinking they know it all and purposely not doing what we ask because the kid thinks they know better than us is a really PITA.) Oh yeah, and Daddy also won't do anything because he doesn't think manners or misbehaving is that big of a deal. I have to deal with the kid most of the time. What can I do to get this child to behave?
PS. BM not in the picture

Maybe you should leave the discipline of him up to his father. I know you said you are the one dealing with him but maybe there are some issues with BM not being in the picture. Having a parent who is not involved sometimes makes it harder for the ones who are there.
