My 9 year old son is becoming difficult to handle. He has an attitude all the time and is just plain mean to his sister sometimes and talks back to me. It seems like he has alot of stress on him. I just recently found out that alot is going on at their fathers house and he is telling the kids to keep it secret from me ( like the power was cut off and like they have so many people in their house that the kids have to sleep together or on the floor or couch and that he has almost no food). And when they do tell me stuff and I confront their father about it the kids get in trouble by him for telling me. My ex husband got remarried 21/2 years ago, and him and his wife have a strange relationship (like when their son was born she had to sleep on the couch with him because he didn't want to hear him crying at night, or that they cheat on each other and some times he yells at her and hits her sometimes too) and I don't like for the kids to be exposed to the stuff that him and he does. They are very close to a woman that lives in his neighbor hood and I just found out from my son that she is living with my ex and his wife and sleeping in the bed with them. DMy son saw it, and his father told him not to tell me and my son finally did tell me the truth and he told me not to tell his father that I know, but it is really hard for me because I am not ok with sending the kids over their with that crap going on and pretending like I don't know. My ex told me that he will call Dss or the police if I don't send them.
