  • Write out a law or rule set. See if he'll sign it and agree. No bad language, you do such and such chores.

  • Tell him no. I wouldn't allow anyone back in my home once they disrespect me and my home.

  • I'm sorry hon, I've been here... but the bad news is that you don't have the final word on this one. His dad has the final word. Until his dad is fed up and finished with letting him move back in, you can only be supportive of your husband and make the best of a bad situation. I wish there was a better answer... but you don't want to cause problems with your husband over his child.

  • i also have a 19y/o stepson, and although it is hard, you need to show him that family doesnt back out and let him move back in. But make rules and have them out in the open before he actually moves in. These need to be ruled that both you and your husband agree on. And possibly have counseling or therapy as a condition. Good luck, and remember you promised to support your husband when you got married, and this boy will always be his son, no matter how rocky the road is!

  • Tell your husband that you need some guidelines. You will not live with cussing and punching in your home. Son is welcome as long as he is respectful, but when he loses his temper, he must start packing his things to leave.

  • If it is legally your house tell him no or sit down and make a guideline, he's old enough to understand them and needs to respect you for taking him in.

  • I would just leave everytime they got in an arguement .....and dont come back till it is over...and bring home some spackel and dry wall so 'ol sunny boy can clean up after himself if he decides to punch holes in the a preteen punk boy....
