My 13 year old stepson lives with his mother we can not get him to respect us and stay out of trouble. We went for custody due to his mother having drug problems. He refuses to live with us and being 13 he has a big say. The problem is he is smoking, drinking using drugs and getting in trouble in school all the time. He only comes to visit when he is forced but wants to reap the beneifits of vacations and presents. The minute he leaves our house he gets in trouble at school and in public. I am scared to have him around my children because of the influence he may have. I got my own place a year ago, due to the situation but, I miss my husband and my children miss their stepfather. We are nervous beause this child gets no discipline for his behavior. Not sure what to do!!!!!!
