I have a 4 yr old who's father has never been in his life. My husband of the other son who is 8 months has been raising him since he was 1. My son sees his biological father from time to time, (once or twice every 3 months). My son is very smart and picks up very fast. We've been having problems with him not listening, cursing, and acting up. My husband feels like he shouldn't be the one to discipline him, because it hurts him to get onto because he is not his biological father. My husband is always there for him, tries talking to him and tries to distract him with sports but nothing seems to work. I am his mother and I feel like a bad parent because he won't listen to me except his biological father who isn't around. Its very embarrassing for us when we're out in public. Please give me any suggestions on how to change this habbit. I'm affraid of how this might affect him when he starts school next yr.
