I have been married for 16 yrs. I have two children. I have a 16 and 7 yr old. My husband has an 8 yr old from an affair. We started seeing my husband's son in Oct of 07. He is extemely difficult to handle. He is so destructive and sneaky. He writes on walls, he throws food on walls, he tries to choke our cat, he looks me in the eyes and lies. I have tried so hard to be patient. My husband doesn't discipline in part because he feels guilty and his mother laughs at his behavior. I have tried time outs and taking away his favorite toys, I just can't get through to him. And my children see him behaving this way and don't understand why they can't "act out". My 7 yr old feels that if he doesn't have to follow the rules why should she. I'm desparetly in need of advice!
