I have a 9 year old step son with downs. His father will not be consistent in the disipline.

Hi. I am ready to end my marriage. My stepsons father will not be consistent or even raise a voice to our son. The school looks to me to have consistent ieps. My son's father won't even follow ANYTHING that is set up. At church he is a bully and so stubborn. He sits on the floor. Sits and states at whoever asks something of him. His father is right there but won't help anyone. He has been very violent at school. He is also very manipulative. We have 5 other children in our home from my previous marriage. Who love him greatly but are so tired of the behaviors and no discipline from dad and me being on edge ALL the time that they don't want to even want to be around him. His natural mother has been in and out of his life and jail and drugs. His paternal grandmother thinks he is being pushed by me to use the toliet. He has been potty trained since he was 3. I did it. Grandmother puts him in pull ups and allows him to live on soda chips juice and whatever fast food he wants. So you can imagine meals. I am finally at my wits end and am considering divorce not separation. I appreciate any words you may be able to give me to see things different or services. Which in Missouri are sadly lacking. Thanks Melinda
