My 6 year old son has ADHD. His stepdad and he do not get along. He and I have had many fights as to what I needed to do for my son's care. My husband just recently took his 3 children to live at their great grandma's on his custody week. He feels that his son and 2 daughters are in "danger" of my son. I do not have a clue as to how I can try and get my husband to be my partner. He knew that my son had issues before we married, but he was dead set on it not being anything other than he being "unruly." Now that the truth is believed my husband wants to run and hide instead of help me. What can I do to change this, and for he and I to become a team???

I agree with Michelle, but I also question why your husband feels your child is a danger to his children? That would be concerning to me. Have you and your husband had any counselling over this to help you become a team?

If he's not willing to put in the effort and help you then you are better off without him. Don't force a relationship between your son and your husband, it won't work. Your main priority is your son and his happiness.
My one bit of advice is NEVER put a relationship before your child.
