Help. 12 y/o step-son/son visiting us after three weeks at evangelical bible camp.

Done a bunch of searches on r/atheism and found some helpful stuff. Nothing specific about talking to kids in our situation. Advice very welcome.

I and my wife are not bible/Torah/Quran burners. We are ordinary, intelligent, from-dirt-poor-to-upper-middle-class Americans. Never prayed once, never believed a second of anyoneโ€™s personal fairytales. No superstition at all. She and I have both read the King James Bible cover to cover, preparing for today (and in the past, the Quran just out of curiosity). Her ex-husband is from a middle America family with parents who have become increasingly devout-as-they-age evangelicals. I donโ€™t know them. Her ex-husband started at a seminary and then dropped out when he realized he was only there because of undue influence as a child. He is now also an atheist and generally a great guy who regrets his years of devout Christianity. Her son is a 12 y/o with a wonderful heart who had been going to church where he lives. He goes with his dad who

AITA For cancelling my step-sons birthday because he facepalmed me?

I married my husband 2 years ago and my relationship with my stepson (12) has never been well. We tried everything but nothing seems to work. His behavior towards me is so terrible, he shouts at me, swears me, and calls me worst โ€œmotherโ€ ever.

His 13th birthday is tomorrow and since my daughter (7F) birthday is only 10 days apart we usually celebrate them both in the same day (they are fine with it). I asked my stepson who he has invited and that's when he facepalms (gesture) and tells me that he has already answered this question before in the worst tone ever. This is where I lost it and told him that because of his attitude I am going to cancel his birthday tomorrow. At first he didnโ€™t believe me since itโ€™s not the first time I intend to punish him without actually doing it in the end. But this time I was serious, and to prove it to him I called his grandparents and told them his birthday got cancelled. He started crying begging me not to cancel but I told him itโ€™s too late.

UPDATE AITA For cancelling my step-sons birthday because he facepalmed me?

A lot of you have dmโ€™d me for an update and since things are getting better between me and my son I decided to let you know how things are going. Click here to see the original post if you havenโ€™t already.

Since many of you have called me an asshole and after the conversation I had with my husband and his parents, I realized that I did indeed overreact and I shouldnโ€™t have made such a harsh punishment. Some of you suggested if his attitude persists, I should find other ways to punish him like not allowing him on the laptop, let him do some housework, etc. and I will start doing these sort of punishments if needed.

Unfortunately, due to me not contacting his friends on time, his birthday party still didnโ€™t happen on his birthday, it was postponed 2 days later, but my daughter still got to celebrate her birthday on that day. My son was obviously really upset and in th

WIBTA if I adopt my friend's son without giving her another chance to step up?

My best friend of over 20 years picked up a horrendous habit a few years ago - the EVIL that is heroin. She went from the most level-headed, kind person I know to a sick, manipulative junkie. She has a 4-year-old son who I have legal guardianship over after I called CPS bc I found opened, dirty needles on the floor of her house while her son (we will call him Adam) was crawling around. After all of that mess ended, she signed over her parental rights to me bc I was her only stable option. Adam has been in my care for 3 years. I took him in when he was a little over 1. The plan has always been for her to get her rights and Adam back when she gets clean. I told her I'd give her one year.

Now, I am a single mom who has a daughter a little older than Adam and they are absolutely inseparable. She 100% considers him her brother. And as for me, I *never* wanted another child... however, after almost 3 years I have come to love him like my own - and this is where the problem begins...

AITA for saying I won't put in more money for my to be step-son's college fund?

Background story: I have one daughter 13f, Anna. Her mom/my wife passed away three years ago. I am now engaged to Jade. Jade has a son 15m, Ben.

We got engaged few weeks ago and finally got around to talking about merging finances. Anna has a pretty good college fund (we call it that, but it's basically hers to use however she sees fit).

Jade has also set up a college fund for Ben. But Anna's is about 10 times as much as Ben. Jade suggested that we split the fund equally and I absolutely refused. My reasons were:

  1. My wife worked full time and I stepped down to freelancing when we had Anna. My wife earned a lot and we had a policy of putting 30% of our salaries into the fund. Needless to say, my wife's contribution was much more than mine.

  2. My wife's parents contributed significantly to this when Anna was born.

  3. Money from my late wife's life insurance went into this fund directly.

Jade didn't like it but she understood. I have started working full time too now that Ann

AITA for telling my step-sister to not call herself my son's aunt cause she isn't apart of his or my family?

When I was around 6F my mom married my step dad (my parents were never married when they had me and have always been on good terms). My step dad had 2 kids of his own who were 9F and 7M at the time, my custody was pretty straight forward and id spend 1 month at my dad's and 1 month at my mom's while they were every 3 weeks at each house. So for 3 weeks every other month id live with them and then every other time I wouldn't. Things at first were not good, my step brother was a very rough kid and I hated playing with him cause he'd break everything and was just mean and aggressive. My step sister wasn't like that but she was just a flat out bitch, she didn't want "a kid" around and wanted nothing to do with me.

So yeah at first things didn't blend well and it didn't change as we all went into middle/high school if anything it got worse. I won't lie I was no saint either in that time but it just wasn't good, I remember my step sister constantly talking down everything I wear when she wa

CONTEXT IS CRUCIAL FOR THIS. I considered not even making a post because I knew it would be long but I'm so happy. Okay, so in 2017 my life became a weird vortex of insane events. Being there is SO much context, I think the best way to break it down is a timeline.

-----2017------ -February- my fiance and I both find out he has a 3 and 1/2 year old son (mom had no intention of sharing, but she needed child support) -May- get legally married and immediately establish parental rights and have McFarley (nickname that won't trace back to real name) almost every weekend for 9 months. Sketchy shit ensues (mom lies, McFarley gets taken out of preschool for missed tuition, etc) ------2018-----. -April - surprise, I'm pregnant. -June- bio mom gets arrested for meth, McFarley immediately moves in with us and husband gets emergency custody. -December- judge takes rights from mom and officially grants sole custody to dad, 2 weeks later baby brother is born.

My obese step-sons weight problem scares me

My wife, step-son and I have officially been a family for about a 2 years now (but we met about 3 years ago)

When i met my step-son, he was a frankly already a very big kid (tipping the scales at 300 pounds at just 12). It'd be easy to blame my wife for allowing that but the truth is is that my wife was a in a brutally abusive relationship with her ex and while my step-sons bio father was never physical with him, i can understand how a child hides behind food while his mother is being beaten. FYI, his bio father is out of the picture ๐Ÿ‘๐Ÿป๐Ÿ™Œ๐Ÿป๐Ÿ™Œ๐Ÿป

Over the past three years, my step-son and wife have gone through some counseling and they both have come out much more mentally stronger, however, my sons weight has unfortunately not seen any positive results.

Now, i dont mean to toot my own horn, but im a very in shape man. I run 6 miles everyday, I eat clean meals--i do a pretty good job keeping trim. I say that because I think i do a good job of setting a positive example for my son

AITA for not wanting my step son to date my daughter?

(Throwaway account) I've been married to my current husband for 2 years, my ex is no longer in the picture, he left me and my daughter (18) years ago, and I haven't heard from him since. I'm 36, and my current husband is 40, with an 18 year old son. I've always gotten along with his son (let's call him mark) quite well, and my daughter (alice) has always gotten along with Mark and her step father very well too. But recently, I found out that mark and Alice have been secretly dating. I found out after I walked in on them having sex. I screamed, and ran out of the room. They said they thought i was going to be out for longer, but I came home early because I had a headache.

I screamed at both of them, and told them that I don't want them dating, or having sex. My daughter started crying, and said that she's in love with Mark. I said that I would kick mark and her out (since I also own the house) if they didn't stop this. My husband is freaking out too, but said that I should relax a bit

Crazy Lady accuses me of kidnapping my step son. Tries to kidnap him from me..

So this happened about a week ago and I honestly am still fuming from this. Iโ€™m not sure if this belongs in this subreddit but here goes.

First a little backstory. Iโ€™m a mixed ethnicity individual. Iโ€™ve been confused for many races over the course of my 29 years on this planet but Iโ€™m literally Caucasian and African American. Usually it can be figured out but the difference with me is my father is the Caucasian so therefore my hair is straight. Iโ€™m originally from Texas and am usually confused for being Mexican. But now I live in Massachusetts and Iโ€™ve never had an issue with anyone concerning my race, until this day. Also I am married to a Caucasian woman who had a child before we were married. His father is not in his life as much and I took the responsibility because I love this woman and I love this little boy as if he were my own. Heโ€™s 4 now and Iโ€™ve been in his life since he was 1.

Anyways onto the story. My wife needed a few things from the grocery store and she needed to run

AITA for not wanting my step son to see his bio dad?

My 11 year old son was recently contacted for the first time by his biological father. Turns out he had spent 7 years in jail so "that's why he didn't contact earlier". I'm no math expert but that doesn't add up to me.

For some background, many years ago my wife was going through terrible grief at the loss of her first boyfriend and ended up making the bad decision of sleeping with a family friend and getting pregnant. She was basically a member of their family beforehand and spent more time with bio dads family than her own. After getting pregnant, she considered terminating the pregnancy as she was somewhat young and was grieving. However, bio dad said no way could that happen. She went ahead with the pregnancy.

Before my son was even born, he had already been abandoned. Bio dad and his entire family cut off all communication with my wife. They wanted nothing to do with her and he literally ghosted her. She claims that he and his family were grieving the loss as well and just could

AITA for telling my ex-wife that its not my problem that our son doesn't want to have a relationship with his step dad and step siblings?

Me and my wife split when our son was around 4ish, I don't want to go in-depth but she got married almost 3 months after our divorce. We split custody 50/50 so I got him 2 weeks every month and summer while she got him for easter and christmas.

My ex's husband brought 4 kids together with my ex and my son, I don't have any other kids so it was just him. My son changed the custody when he was 13 to where he spends summers, christmas and 3 weeks at my place with 1 week at their. I know the divorce was hard and we did put him in therapy but he stopped after awhile cause he didn't feel anything was really changing and he seems better.

He texted me that he was coming over, and my ex called me and she was very mad at me. She said that I am poisoning our son, cause she said that he NEVER talks to his step dad or step siblings.

My daughter and (step) son are both 6, they were both 5 and itโ€™s been almost a full year since me and my wife have been married and moved in. They fight constantly, I know kids and siblings fight but this is way more than me and my brothers ever went.

The Shadow animatronics are reflections of William Afton and his son (light Step Closer spoilers)

Agony. Lovely word isn't it? I've heard a lot of people get mad about using agony as evidence for theories. What people say a lot of the time is that agony is a new element to the franchise, and has never existed in the previous games.

However this is untrue. There has always been theories of agony existing ever since the FNAF 2 days. Specifically with the topic of today's theory, the Shadow animatronics.

https://youtu.be/kLnpp9JAS74

5 years ago, Dawko made this theory. A theory that speculates that the shadow animatronics are the darkness of the springlock suits William used to kill the kids.

Funny right? That's literally what we see in Into The Pit. The darkness of Spring-Bonnie and the MCI creates the demonic Spring-Bonnie that haunts Oswald. An entity that had a black liquid leaking from it's eye. Scott intentionally told the artist to put that there as well, it's no mistake.

I used to beat him pretty easily when he was younger, but nowadays he's putting up more and more of a fight. He has started going to the gym recently and I'm worried that soon I'll be the one getting bitchslapped. Considering all the resentment built up from all these years of neglection and abuse - well, it would probably not end well for me. Thus I have decided to pick up martial arts. So I am new to the scene and in addition to this I've joined a Karate school. I've always been a fan of Kung Fu movies, but the entrance to the dojo has me confused. Why do I need to take off my shoes? And can someone explain what all the different colours of the belts mean??!

AITA for making my step son believe he is turning into a waffle and he is eating his cousins and that made him cry to his mom in fear?

So, I (M29) have a step son who is 6 years old. I love the little fucker. He is hilarious and very articulate for his age. Better than I am honestly. Little shit.

He speaks ALL DAY LONG. Every morning he wants waffles for breakfast. Doesn't matter what morning it is or what we have in the house. Waffles. Just waffles. So... I started fucking with him. I told him "You know... if you continue to eat waffles like you do there is a chance you will turn into a waffle". Then I get a "What do you mean?" So I just spill some bullshit about how it's some disease that is extremely difficult to get blah blah blah.

A few weeks of this goes by every morning. He never believes me and I always laugh at his. Yesterday morning however... was different. I kept looking at the back of his head and when he would quickly turn to look at me.. I'd look away with that "Yup I wasn't looking!". He kept asking me what I was looking at and I told him that the back of his head is turning into a waffle and I think

WIBTA for walking away from my wife and step son?

Let me explain a little bit, first.

I (32M) have been married to my wife (34F) for about five years. When we married she had a son (16 now) who had some minor behavioral problems, but nothing bad. He would act out a little, just the usual kid stuff. He would "joke" with me, which was really him saying something mean or hurtful and just saying it was a joke. I made it clear from the start that I didn't take it as a joke.

From there, things have gotten progressively...much worse. He started cursing quite a bit and while we have gotten onto him about it and taken away privileges, it has only gotten worse.

AITA for detaching from my step son

It sounds bad but please let me explain.

I adore my step son and have ever since I met his father. The problem is the mother. She doesnโ€™t like me, and feels as if I โ€œwant to have a say soโ€ in their childโ€™s life.

Iโ€™ve never gone out my way to impose or make any decisions regarding their child. Honestly, my biggest priority concerning their son is the fact that my boyfriend is allowed to be a father. She constantly keeps him away and finds any reason to argue with him. Literally she would say things like โ€œyou canโ€™t have him this week cause he didnโ€™t have socks on last week when you dropped him offโ€.

I donโ€™t know where the animosity comes from however over two years of a relationship with my boyfriend heโ€™s seen his son a total of 1 or 2 months. He gets him on a weekend basis usually or the kid sleeps over for one night. In March, she walked up to my car and I got out to ask her what the (current) problem is and why she has an issue. She got defensive and began screaming about how m

My son hates his step siblings and refuses to talk or do anything with them.

So me and my wife have been split for about a year at this point, and my son (5yo) splits time with us, I get him on the weekends and every 3 day weekends while my ex gets him on weekdays. The divorce with my ex wasn't messy or bad at all we just simply fell out of love and found it better for our son to just not be around us. We "moved on" about 3 years before the actual divorce and she was dating someone new by that time. My ex has no moved in with her current BF, and he has 3 kids who are 6, 5, and 3 while my son is 5 and the same age as the other boy in the house.

The thing is that he HATES staying at his moms, I don't know the full story but what my ex tells me is that he is short with the step siblings and step dad. He doesn't hit anyone or goes out of his way to actively be mean to anyone but he wants nothing to do with them. My son has always been a quiet kid at home and prefers playing with his toys by himself. While I wouldn't say he is rude to them he was short and irritate

AITA for not interacting with my step mom's son?

I(15M) am not fond of kids. I've always ignored or strayed away from kids way younger than me, it's just how I've been since I was a toddler. I apparently didn't wanna associate with my own sister when she was like 2 or 3.

So my dad cheated on my mom with my step mom around 4ish years ago. It definitely upset me but I've never started a conversation with anyone about it or even talked about it. My dad and mom split a little over 3 years ago now. I see my dad every weekend and the son is supposed to be over every other weekend but sometimes he's over more often. Pretty soon after we were introduced to our step mom who I like a lot. It was rough at first but I do like her Although, I wouldn't say love. Her son was born 6 days after my 12th birthday so he's gonna be 4 in less than a month and I've never interacted with him more than a few forced replies which were mostly encouraged by my dad and step mom. I've known him his whole life basically and he's been nothing but an annoyance to m

AITA for being upset that I was separated from my fiance at my step-sons wedding? (Wife is Stepsons mother)

Hi, so this isnโ€™t actually about me. Iโ€™ve just gotten off the phone to my dad, whoโ€™s at his stepsons wedding. Heโ€™s been with his fiance for about five years now.

So this wedding has been a bit of a nightmare for him. When it was planned last year, neither me nor my sister were invited as โ€˜there wasnโ€™t enough seats at the venueโ€™. This irked my dad massively but i convinced him to drop it as the truth is I was pretty glad i didnโ€™t have to go to a wedding in 40 degree heat.

Later on, my step-sisterโ€™s (brother of step-son whoโ€™s wedding it is) boyfriend got an invite to the wedding. This again irked my dad as theyโ€™d only been dating 4 months (btw, theyโ€™re 16) and he felt that me and my sister deserved an invite ahead of him. But again, he got over that eventually (although side note, heโ€™s somehow ended up having to pay for her boyfriend to go, the guy is constantly at our house and leeches off of everyone with not a word of thanks, but thats a me issue)

So finally the wedding has come.

I just discovered this sub Reddit and I thought I tell you about a bunch of things my step son's friend did and said:

  • He mixed sour key rings in with his weed, then made a blunt and smoked it because he "Thought it would make the weed taste like candy." He did that in the middle of science class.
  • He thought blue cheese came from blue cows.
  • He thought chocolate milk came from brown cows and strawberry milk came from pink cows. He thought the same thing for any other flavor of milk.
  • He thought it would be a good idea to reach inside the vending machine to get free cookies. They had to dismantle part of the vending machine to get him out.
  • He thought glass and plastic were the same. Why? I don't know.
  • He made a bunch of shanks out of a Monster energy drink cans and tried to sell them in the middle of the hallway.
  • He smoked pine needles in the middle of science class because "It'll taste like pine!" It didn't.

I need some advice, My step son is indoctrinated by his grandfather.

My step son is 8 and I've been the only daddy he has ever had. His mother and I aren't together anymore because of our ideological differences, she's a devout Pentecostal.

We're still close and I still spend time with my son. I should reiterate her dad's a pastor, so that was a big part of our problem. I love my son, but the other day he says (Daddy, why don't you go to church jesus loves you and I don't want you to go to the bad place. Why don't you go to church daddy? I just changed the subject, what do I say, his mom didn't put him up to it. She's really a great friend and still very supportive.

When he said that, I was so pissed. Not at him, but at the indoctrination. I don't want to lose him, he's homeschooled and is only around family and church members. So I want to spend time with him, so he can at least learn something besides church brainwashing. I worry about his development mentally and socially.

[Kentucky] My wife was threatened with arrest for requesting a welfare check after receiving alarm message from her step son

My son currently has a temporary order of protection in place against his step dad after the step dad held his head under water, threw him into a door frame, and busted his lip (separate incidents). We were told by the county attorney that the man would not be allowed around the child. We receive a phone call about 24 hours after dropping him off with his mother that he is in the house.

Law enforcement responds but says that the EPO is invalid because it was missing some check marks, but that they told us my son would be leaving the home and staying elsewhere until the hearing.

We receive a signed copy of the EPO from the clerk and find that what they said about the missing checkmarks wasn't true. We receive another call a week later that the man is around our son again. My wife was out, drove by the house, and saw both the man and the mom's car in their driveway. She calls the police and says that she isn't sure if the man is there, but wonders if they can do a wellness check.

Step son issues. I don't know if this is me venting or a plea for help.. Maybe a little of both.

Edit: Long, wordy post. Added TLDR at bottom.

First off, throw away account. Not sure if that actually matters or means anything, but I see people say that at the beginning of posts they don't want people in real life to see.

Anyways, I don't even know where to begin. I usually am a pretty good, succinct yet detailed writer, but fair warning now - I'm probably just going to ramble incoherently in this post. So I'd leave now if you're not wanting to read.

Alright- my wife and I have been married for a year on the 16th, but we were together for about 4.5 years before getting married. She had 2 kids from her first marriage - Step Son is 15, going on 16, Step Daughter is 13, going on 14. Her ex may or may not be a good father, I don't know him that well, but I do know he is a real control freak, along with his father as well.

I had already told them all goodnight and I loved them before, but I had to pop back into the room to tell my fiancรฉ something Iโ€™d forgotten to mention. The kids never tell me they love me back, so I didnโ€™t think to say it to them again as it was only a few minutes later (I know this still feels new to them, so I try not to overwhelm them with stuff like that. I make my feelings known when I need to, but donโ€™t remind them too often; I donโ€™t want to come off as too much).

This just made me feel extra smiley and I wanted to share (:

So my husband has a 24 yr old son. Weโ€™re been married 8 years. His son lived abroad until about 7 year ago. Before that my husband would travel abroad to visit his son.

He never comes to anything. He does see my husband but my husband has to go to him. Now I have excepted that they were developing their own bond and a step mom can be a bit of a drag so I after asking to come several times and never being invited by his son or her mom for any event graduations, parties, movie night or even letโ€™s have coffee. I have just stayed quiet about it, in order to allow my husband and his son their alone time. In the mean time I always send gifts and has been very generous with financial support for these occasion.

My step-son would have graduated HS a few weeks ago, shortly after turning 18.

TLDR: I helped raise a 7yo boy until he was 12. He was my son to me. When I broke up with his mom, she didn't want me to be in contact with him. He found ways to text me early on, but it would suddenly stop. He turned 18 recently and it would have been his High School graduation a few weeks ago. I don't know anything about his life. I haven't stopped thinking about him and hope he's doing well.

I was in a pretty unhealthy relationship many years ago, with a single mom. To make a long story short, I broke things off when it became too unhealthy for me. I resent that relationship and I am glad to be out of it.

When we met, she had a 7yo son. He didn't have a father figure, or any responsible adults at home. I grew up with kids around me my entire life, I love taking care of people, teaching and sharing. I love kids, and always wanted kids. I loved having someone to take care of, we bonded so well. It was the first time he had a father figure. I taught him to draw, and he became amazi

My sonsโ€™ dad and step mother are being emotionally abusive

First time poster here.

So my ex and I divorced in 2013 when our boys were 6 and 3. The divorce was not amicable. I left the relationship after years of emotional and mental abuse. The straw that broke the camelโ€™s back was when he became physical. I left that day and never looked back. Child support was ordered and we got joint custody with him having visitation every other weekend and one evening during the week. All other times the children were with me.

Over the next couple of years there were texts begging me to come back, telling me that God was watching me, and that God was going to punish me for destroying our family. He also told the boys that, โ€œhe hoped God didnโ€™t have to do anything to them (the boys) to get my attention to make me get right with Godโ€. The texts increased in frequency when he learned I was dating. On one occasion when I dropped off the boys with him he followed me, I was meeting the person I was dating.

I was hoping once I had my son, it would make me more motherly towards my step-son.

SPOILER ALERT: it didnโ€™t.

I just cannot connect with my step-son at all, and it makes me feel horrible.

He 8 years old. He is severely adhd and I honestly think he may be on the spectrum as well. He has a hard time having real conversations with his daddy and I. All he wants to talk to us about are video games, and while Iโ€™m glad he has an interest that heโ€™s passionate about, I get so sick of hearing literal commercials coming from his mouth.

He speaks exclusively like a cartoon character/recites sections of videos and shows he likes and will replay the section over and over again until he memorizes it. Which in itself is very impressive, but itโ€™s exhausting when you try to talk to him about his day and you donโ€™t know what part is reciting shows and what part is real and actually happened?

He is so high energy and has many random outbursts a day, and.. especially with a newborn I just canโ€™t stand it.

I have to repeat myself to him millions of times a day. Walking feet please.

AITA for teaching my (step) son how to shave?

Let me preface this by saying that I've been with my (33) wife (29) for 7 years now and she's the best, we have a wonderful relationship and she's generally very understanding on all things, except for all things concerning our kids (14m & 10f), both of the little ones are hers from her "ex" for lack of a better term. The ex (who I knew before) passed 11 years ago and the wife has done an exceptional job at raising both kids, being a mom and a dad.

Now the problem at hand is that my son has started shaving, and not very well if I do say so myself. I'm talking a lot of razor burns, irritation and some cuts. Being his dad and all I thought it was my responsibility to show him how to do it properly without f*cking his face up every time. So one day when both the girls were out I decided to show him how it's done and I basically shaved him. After shaving I cleaned him up, gave him some tonic and balm and sent him on his way.

So his mom came and he very excitedly showed her his irrit

AITA for wanting nothing to do with my step son?

Throwaway for obvious reasons.

I [41M] met my wife [39F] 5 years ago and we got married 2 years after that. I was in a previous child free marriage before this but I lost my wife suddenly in 2011.

We hit it on straight from the first day we met. I met her through a mutual friend.

She was a single mother with an 10 year old at the time. He was a quiet boy most of the time but he seemed to lack basic manners and didn't respect authority with his mother.

I looked past this as I thought he is a young lad who just needs more discipline and care and I vowed to help and raise him when I married my wife.

However he is now 15 and has become a complete nightmare. He has significant behavior problems such as being extremely aggressive and rude to me and my wife, stealing money from my wallet, racist to classmates, making sexual innuendos to teachers (and getting expelled from school for this), shoplifting, vandalising public property, smoking with other kids and just being a total dickhea

My step son is becoming increasingly physically and verbally abusive.

Pretty much says it all. I (32M) have been married to my wife (34F) for about five years. She has a son (16) who has been getting worse and worse over the years. I understand teenagers can be problematic, but it's become a daily issue where he flips me the bird at least three times a day, tells me to f-off, or flat refuses to help with...anything. I could be working on something in his room and, since I'm the one working on it, apparently I shouldn't have any help at all.

Lately, he's been threatening me and has even pulled his arm back as if to punch me a few times. He has even threatened that he can hit me and I can't do anything back because he'll call child services. (I've made it clear that I'm not afraid of that happening)

He's gone out of his way to make life...well, miserable. I've become so miserable being around him that it no longer feels I have a home. My wife only disciplines him half the time and no matter what she does, he only seems to get worse. I'm at a loss, I don'

Me [33 M] with my child's mother [38 F] and son [8 M] and his step-dad [35 M] - Son says that step-dad shoved him into a door frame, breaking his glasses and spraining his wrist. Step-dad and mom deny it, counselor says going to emergency room was an over-reaction

My family noticed some swelling on my son's wrist and suggested I take him to the ER (it was the weekend) for an x-ray. He had told them that his step-father had shoved him into a door frame and that he was scared. They have a history of rough housing, and we've had other things about this guy that made us feel nervous (sleeping in the bed together after he only knew the mom for a few weeks, bruising, busted lips that he attributed to this man, etc)

At the ER, he told the police that the man had shoved him with two hands into a door frame, hyperextending his wrist. Social services is involved, and I obtained an EPO to keep the man away. I promised him that the man wouldn't be around (he had waken up throughout the night the night before terrified and kept asking how sure we were he'd be gone)

He calls me the after the first night that he's back with his mom, and tells us he's there. The police respond and say that because of the wording of the EPO, they can't enforce it. They sa

Son took first steps today!

Iโ€™ve been pushing off getting LO (11 mo) a push walker because heโ€™s been so close to walking and I didnโ€™t want to get it and then him start walking the next day. So I finally found a toddler stroller, which he can push to walk around but he can use it when he gets a little older to play pretend, and thereโ€™s a little doll too that he has. And after about a week of waiting for it to come it came today. And I gave it to him and he was having such a blast, walking around. Literally has been pushing it from the time he woke up from his nap. So he walks into the living room with it, stopping about 3 feet short of the coffee table. And wouldnโ€™t ya know it, he fucking lets go of the damn thing and takes his first steps unassisted, walking himself to the coffee table !!

All joking aside, Iโ€™m so excited! He did it one then and once after bath time. Iโ€™m so excited for him! He is literally wearing himself out trying so hard to walk haha. Yay!!

Sons of Liberty was such a step up in gameplay

This aspect of the game doesn't get brought up enough but the improvements between this game and the first in gameplay was astounding and blew my mind having played both around their original launch dates. Sons of Liberty felt so ahead of its time things like being able to break fire extinguishers and pipes were next level innovations. Shooting out enemy radio and other things in the environment. Finally being able to use every weapon in first person view and corner shots were brilliant additions. The realism in enemies needing to radio for back up for the alert to go off.Enemy A.I. becoming more coordinated with the introduction of caution mode and enemies wearing riot gear in alert. Even something as simple as adding the roll was a noticeable upgrade. All of this was in a 2001 game.

Step-son modified truck to be super loud- am I making too much of it?

Married 9 months, together 2 yrs. I have 2 kids; twin boy/girl 16. She has 16 boy, 13 girl, 10 boy.

Last night her 16yr old brought home his newly modified muffler to show us. He started up his car and revved his engine and I thought I was going to die. Every neighbor for miles no doubt heard it. I told him to shut if off and "fix it". He said no way, and I told him he could keep it at his dad's but I was not going to have my neighbors listen to him late nights (or any other time) when he comes home or leaves.

His mom is 100% in opposite direction. Her opinion is "well, he will just not rev the engine when in the neighborhood." I'm not there.

Thoughts?

My step daughter said that my son isnโ€™t her real brother and now my son refuses to interact with anyone but me

My wife died when our son was 1, he doesn't really remember a time with her and has never asked for a mom (my sister and mom were great pseudo moms for him).ย ย I don't want to sound too mean but he is a bit of a drama queen and holds onto grudges longer than most.ย ย I remember one time the dog kind of growled at him cause he was holding onto a dog biscuit and taking him with it, he then refused to pet the dog for about 3 days.ย ย He's a good kid and follows rules just holds grudges pretty bad and its been something I've been working on him with for awhile.

About a year ago I got remarried and she had 2 kids who were 1 year older than my son and 1 year younger, she was also pregnant with a girl.ย ย He was not happy about having siblings and was very pissy, as the pregnancy went on he opened up a bit.ย ย Sure the kids still fought but he was excited for a baby sister and they seemed to be getting along more and more.ย ย When the baby was born, the first week was the cutest damn and it seemed th

Had to pick my son up from his grandparentsโ€™ house because my narcissistic step mother wouldnโ€™t allow him to talk to me with the door closed.

First post; forgive me for not knowing literally anything about the posting etiquette here. Please be patient if I did it all wrong. Just need to get it out but I welcome support.

My step mom was the kind of person who didnโ€™t allow me to close my bedroom door under any circumstances, and didnโ€™t allow me to lock my bathroom door, under any circumstances. She would come by while I was using the restroom or taking a shower and open the door just to check that she could, and then she would leave it barely open, every time. I moved in with her and my dad when I was ten years old, going from a home where I was trusted almost completely, to a home where I was told I wasnโ€™t allowed to close my bedroom door because I โ€œcould be smoking meth in there.โ€

My ten year old son absolutely loves my dad and visits him frequently, but I have never been comfortable with the fact that heโ€™s also around my step mom. It turns out, she pulls a lot of the same bullshit with him that she did with me.

Seeking advice, married to an amazing man who left the Mormon church, I have two amazing step sons but their mother is still raising them LDS

I love my husband and kids so much, theyโ€™re the best thing that ever happened to me. Before we were a family I was the most outspoken person on earth - but our boys are being raised Mormon and now I feel so voiceless and powerless. At first it made me so angry I realized a lot of my grievances with the Mormon church also applied to the Catholic Church I was raised in and now Iโ€™m just generally disgusted by religion and how itโ€™s divided my family (my dad was Methodist and his parents disowned him because he raised me and my sisters catholic). My husband reminds me that the best we can do is just show them by example what a happy life away from the church looks like. Iโ€™m afraid if I ever speak my mind about my distain for the church Iโ€™ll make them feel attacked or defensive. Their mother is a real piece of work whoโ€™s constantly demonizing us. She relentlessly guilts and manipulates the boys to do and even think want she wants. I donโ€™t know how to talk to them about it. Their mom remarri

My daughter and step sonโ€™s fighting is constant and I donโ€™t know what to do anymore.

me and my wife have been dating for about 2 years and married for a full year in about a month, we both brought in 1 kid with us to the marriage who are the same age.ย ย My daughter and step son are both 6, and grew up sort of life only children for a bit of their lives add in the fact they are the same age with my daughter being older by exactly 1 month and 3 days it has been a recipe for constant fighting and stubbornness.ย ย My daughter is here on the weekdays so Monday-Friday while my wife gets him on the weekends and my step son is here pretty much full time cause his bio dad isn't the best guy.

The fighting is daily and it is always over sharing, we can only afford 1 xbox they both love the lego games but have to play co-op or share while both hate that.ย ย They have their own toys, but also have a play room and if 1 takes 1 tiny lego from the other, a full on screaming match will go on till me or my wife send them to their rooms.ย ย Hell the wrong look at the dinner table can lead to

17 year old step son wants to buy a car

So my step son recently just got his license and is looking into getting a car.

I am his step mom and he is one of the most hard working and responsible kids I've ever met. He has done nothing but work his a$$ of for years and has managed to save up $5,000.

His dad and I want him to get something safe like a Honda Civic / accord and if he does we offered to help him with buying it. He did not seem at all interested.

He is looking at a mitsubishi eclipse he wants one because they are " fun " ( he's a car enthusiast )

His dad said he can get the eclipse if he paid for everything himself. ( Still didn't care )

I get he can afford what he actually wants but I don't want him in anything nice as a first car.

What's the best way to entice him to come to an agreement with us for something safer like a civic?

AITA for refusing to help my step son with his schoolwork?

Quick background- I married my partner 6 months ago and became a stepmom to 3 beautiful kids. Weโ€™ve all lived together for ~3 years; we have a 50/50 split with bio mom and the three of us co-parent well together.

When bio mom dropped off yesterday, she looked like she was at the end of her tether. We had a chat and she expressed how difficult the little one was being, brought her to tears multiple times throughout that day, being rude and disrespectful with his words regarding school.

Our eldest 2 daughters are 15 & 13 and have managed well with the change to online school and are doing solid. Our issue today is with our youngest and only son, aged 9.

My partner and I take turns based off of our work meetings helping the little one with his school work. I was in charge of maths over lunch time as I had meetings for the remainder of the afternoon. We had just sat down at the dining room table to sort out his math, when he quickly got up, said he canโ€™t be around me while Iโ€™m eat

My son hates his step siblings and refuses to talk or do anything with them.

So me and my wife have been split for about a year at this point, and my son (5yo) splits time with us, I get him on the weekends and every 3 day weekends while my ex gets him on weekdays. The divorce with my ex wasn't messy or bad at all we just simply fell out of love and found it better for our son to just not be around us as a married couple. We "moved on" about 3 years before the actual divorce and she was dating someone new by that time. My ex has no moved in with her current BF, and he has 3 kids who are 6, 5, and 3 while my son is 5 and the same age as the other boy in the house.

The thing is that he HATES staying at his moms, I don't know the full story but what my ex tells me is that he is short with the step siblings and step dad. He doesn't hit anyone or goes out of his way to actively be mean to anyone but he wants nothing to do with them. My son has always been a quiet kid at home and prefers playing with his toys by himself. While I wouldn't say he is rude to them
