Hi Everybody, I have been suspicious of some of my stepson's behavior recently. He will say he forgot something in his room then go in shut the door and come out a few minutes later. I know I am going into an area that is sticky for parents but I decided to pull open his nightstand drawers. In the 2nd drawer is a 3/4 empty bottle of Amaretto. In the top drawer is one empty package of condoms and 2 full ones. I'm not expecting him to be a saint but I have no idea where the liquor bottle came from. His Dad is out of the house right now as is my stepson. How should I handle this? I know people say 'don't snoop around'... did I cross a boundary? I don't like the idea that he's hiding liquor in his room AT ALL. (that's putting it mildly) How do I bring this up without looking like the evil stepmother who went snooping in her stepson's room?

But I know that is not our future together at least with...
