He HAD counseling.... or he's still in counseling? If he's not still in it... I would suggest going back. GOOD for you for getting out of that relationship, but 8 years is a long time. He's probably heading for puberty and that, plus the stuff with his dad, could be messing up his head in ways he's not even able to acknowledge. Keep consistent on the consequences for his behavior... if the consequences he has aren't 'reaching' him... you may need to get a bit creative and find something that 'hits home' for him.

Maybe counseling for BOTH of you... individual and together... would be a big help.

Also.... You've only been separated from your ex for 2 years and are already married again.... how does your son get along with his stepdad? That could be a partial cause of the issues.... or could be a big help depending on how your son truly feels about him and all of that.
