  • Well if you and your soon to be husband can't seem to get him to stop then maybe seek outside help, a counselor, therapist, something like that. A 7 year really shouldn't be acting out like that. I would even maybe talk to his doctor and see what he/she has to say. GL.

  • Maybe he is angry and needs some counseling? Maybe he just needs a place to say how he feels and to safely express what he see's.

  • What have you done about it so far? Is he aware of your house rules? Have you set up some consequences for bad behavior?

  • If his dad don't discipline him, you may should think twice before jumping into that marriage. If you thinks its bad now, just wait, it will get worse after you two marry.

  • Your husband and you both need to set strict rules and boundaries for while he is at your home. It sounds to me like he is not getting discipline when he is with his mother?

  • You? Not much. Your soon to be husband needs to control that one.
