Okay, so my boyfriend and I have been dating for 6 years and he has a son who is 11 from a previous relationship. His son has major problems like a adhd and odd combination... he is defiant, does not listen, is mean, rude has bad attitude... well more recently he has begun to become physical... What do you do when an older child starts to hurt you? hitting, kicking, digging nails into you...

You need to protect yourself! You can't allow this to happen. I'm a step mom to 2 girls and it does not get easy!! There are days I want to run and hide. But physically I know that I-and my babies-are safe. If you can't be safe you need to re-evaluate your relationship with his father. Sadly, these issues do not always resolve with therapy and medications. If you stay with him, marry him, have kids with him you need to operate on the assumption that his special needs son may never improve. I wish you luck- and wish I could say it all gets easier.

Is his son recieving all the therapies he needs? If so then you can go in as a family and learn ways to cope as a family.
