Stepson came home Monday. Looking depressed and all in black. When he ended up telling me the next day what was bothering him, I was pretty upset but just listened. His dad has been on a drinking binge for several weeks bashing me. If thats not enough, Hes been giving the 16 year old alcohol. So has the mom. STBX also told him that I said I dont love him and dont want him with me anyomre. I told Keith that was not true and if he wants to stay here there will be rules. No drinking, drugs, smoking. There will be chores, curfews and schoolwork. And no discussing his dad and what he says. I told him he should know better and needs to catch his head when he tells him things and take it with a grain of salt. After our conversation, he perked up and started acting like a normal kid again. How do you hurt your kid like that? Thats not even my kid and I wont do that to him. And I know people will say call child protection. It doesnt work. Already been there. Should I suck it up even though I wish they would just grow up and take care of him and move on? I love Kieth but I dont want his parents in my life at all. I dont know what to do with all this.
