Background: My 8 year old stepson has ADHD. I have two biological children, one of which is my husband's son also. We get every other weekend visits and every other Thursday responsibilities with SS. (Pick up from school, homework, eat, shower, bed... and that's pretty much all we have time for.) So... BM is recently married, around the same time that my son was born. This is when she implemented our new schedule with SS. He's having a super hard time in school, behaviourally and academically. He tells us that his mom and step dad do not: help with homework, cook dinner (they make pizza or order Chinese, etc), eat in the same room with him, wash clothes, make him shower everyday, teach the dogs not to poop on all of his things, etc, etc. He also has said that he's been allowed to stay home ALONE until recently because he "told too many people" and now he's not allowed to. When confronted about these things, BM denies everyone of them, of course. SS informed us recently that his mother has TOLD HIM TO LIE TO HIS FATHER about these issues and more, if he "thinks it might make Daddy mad at Mommy." I could go on for days about other things that she's allowed him to do that are INSANE... With his own MOTHER encouraging him to lie, even about SHOWERS, how do we discipher or discipline the lying in our home? Where to go from here?! (There is NO communication with BM as she simply ignores all of my husband's attempts!)
