You and your SO need to be on the same page. If you aren't, the step son won't behave, since he has no incentive.

Never make threats that you are unwilling or unable to carry out.

Welcome! How old are your stepsons?

Why are you even trying to discipline his kids? It doesn't even sound like you are married, so I get why they wouldn't listen to you. Their parents need to be stepping in and addressing their behavior.

It's hard enough to discipline your own children, let alone teenage stepsons. Do your stepsons live with you and your SO full time? Is their BM in the picture?

All kids need boundaries and discipline, so I can understand why you're trying to provide that for them. Not only do they need it, but you do, too! Bedtime for the little ones and curfew times for the teens are golden so that you can have structure and sanity in your home, and you can get a bit of peace in the evenings, even if it's just 30 minutes. Has your SO ever disciplined his boys? Do you two have a completely different definition of "discipline?"

Their BM lives in Texas so they communicate only via phone once a week. My SO is very rarely home, he works a lot. They live with us full time. My two youngest go to their dad's on the weekends. We have charted chores and responsibilities posted on the wall. They have very set bedtimes and routines. Just yesterday, I found out one of them stole my brothers Beats headphones from his house. But none of them will fess up about who took them so they are all grounded-no electronics-until we know who did it. It's never ending.

Sorry to hear what you are going through. I have 1 son and he is a handful, so I can only imagine how it is to have 3.  Below is a link to an article that discusses stepparenting.  I pray it will be a blessing to you.
