My step-son has alot of problems. He has ADHD and talks ALOT. He is almost 13,but has the maturity level of a 6y/o. He has to be told several times to finish eating. Most people find him quite annoying. He doesn't have many friends at school,has had issues at school including a teacher going off on him and kids teasing him. My husband didn't see him from 5-8 due to lies that his mother told to the court and to their son as well. He says alot of unhealthy things-I've heard him say that he was gonna blow up when his father was trying to teach him to wash dishes,that it was his duty to shoot someone,and within the past 2 days, I've heard him say that he almost killed someone,and that his next crazy move was to strangle someone. I am concerned because I have a 13-month old,and another baby due in Oct. My mother's intuition tells me not to have him playing alone with my kids,and don't want him to taint them in anyway. I've told my husband this,but he doesn't believe that his son would harm our kids- I believe he doesn't want to think negatively of his son and I'd rather not take the chance. What should I do about my step-son and my husband?
