I have been with my boyfriend since last February. We knew each other from work and things professed quickly. He brings a 10 year old son and I bring a 3year old daughter. My bf and his ex baby the boy bad. His grades are horrible but if I ask if I could help him he goes crying (literally) to his dad and mom. Grades are so important. He's getting Bs and As on the test but 50% of his homework. So at the base of this is laziness.
He is completely helpless. He can't make his own plate and dinner then expects me to deal with his plate. He has verbal outburst and has thrown him self to the ground sobbing when he doesn't get his way. Every time I try to talk to the bf he gets all mad. I don't know what to do. I want so much for him. I feel the same about him as I do my daughter and want great things for him, even after how disrespectful he has been to me. How can I help him change his bad habits without fighting? Or should I just stay out of it and let his dad handle it and wash my hands clean
