I have a 6 year old stepson that I've been help raising since he was a baby in diapers, we have a very close relationship and we always have, his mother was gone a lot when he was a baby but as he's getting older she's around a lot more which I think is great for him! My husband has full legal and physical custody, and my stepson has been doing so much better in his daily life such as eating habits, school, etc. However he has been lying A LOT to either us about his mom or to his mom about me. He knows his mom doesn't like me he says "because of the bad things she says about me" so he assumes I don't like her. I explain to him that I do like her because she had him and without her he would not be here. With that being said my sons mother has told my husband that she hears from my son that I tell him bad things about her. Which is NOT true, she says I brainwash him and tell him that she's not his real mom, that she doesn't love him, that she doesn't take care of him etc. But my son tells me the same thing about her saying those things about me. Not a coincidence right? I mean his mom has done a numerous amount of terrible things to him, like physically fight in front of him, made him wear diapers at his age because her boyfriend wanted him to, been in and out, etc. And she has lied herself about me to cps and to my son. I don't know what to do anymore, I keep trying the little boy who cried wolf tale, I've even explained to my son the consequences of his lying but this past weekend he was with her he admitted to me that he lied about me to her again. I'm out of ideas and I need HELP!
