ok, long story short, here's the sitch~ my DH has a 15 year old son that treats me like a pariah and has been allowed to do it with no repercussions from his Dad. His BM passed when he was just 6 and I've been involved since he was 7. Things have gotten worse since the teen years hit, the swearing at me, blatant disrespect, and just plain not doing as he is told. His father keeps telling me to back off but then doesn't step up to correct the problem. My DS, 9 will be moving in with us by next week. My biggest hurdle is going to be trying to help everyone to get along but how can I do that when I don't feel like I have the support or respect from my DH???
