My step-sons mom has filed for divorce. He does not live with her and can't understand why she has a new boyfriend already when she just filed a week prior. This boyfriend now picks my step-son(16) up for the moms visits, and he has a daughter also. He has lived with his dad and I for 10 years and his mom has had 8 engagements and 1 new marriage that lasted 3 yrs. She has 5 children from different dads. She cheated on my husband and ended up with twins. So my step-son has seen a lot in his life and wants to feel his mom loves him before other men. She always makes promises she can't keep and tells the kids all about the new boyfriend and how great life is going to be now. My step-son does not want to hurt her by saying anything, and just wants her to be happy, in the meantime he suffers. It kills us to know he has this on his shoulders. He wants to believe his moms stories, and makes excuses for her. How can we help him?Answer Question
