I have been an active part of my step-sons life for over 2 years now. His birth mother for all intense purposes basically chose her lifestyle over her sons. I have tried to be a good parent to all 3 children ( they are ages 7, 10 and 14 all boys). I have very minimal trouble with my 7 and 10 year old but no matter what I say or do my 14 year olseems to resent me. I have been told that part of this is normal teen behavior but he is so great with everyone else; it is only me that he swears at, makes rude gestures, back talks, defies etc. He has even told his younger brothers he hates me but would not say why. His dad has tried speaking with him numerous times but nothing changes. His dad works 6 days a week and 10 hours a day; something he has always done. I am a stay-at-home mom. We are talking about getting married but I feel I am at my breaking point with the disrespect and overall bad treatment from my 14 yr old. Help pls!
