i am a 30 year old women with an 18 year old stepson that lives with his father and me. since turning 18, he, in my opinion, has no regard for what his father tells him. it makes me angry because he doesn't discipline him the way i see as appropriate. for example, when he gets kicked out of school for cursing at a teacher or leaving a class, he comes home, chats on the computer and goes out with his friends when school lets out. this is unacceptable to me. but it seems his father has no problem with this. also,since he's 18 and a "man" why should he have to be told to clean up? his father and i work day and night, why should we have to come home to dirty dishes when he's only got a half day of school and no job. what prompted me to find this site was coming home at 11 pm finding the garbage and recyclables still in the house when garbage pick up is tomorrow morning. i asked his father about it and he said he told him three times to do it. this is unacceptable to me. please help.
