my ten year old step son

My ten year old step son has behavioral issues. I am wondering if these are normal and how do I deal with them. I have been pulling my hair out and taking things personally. He constantly lies, he was stealing from me, tearing things apart no matter what it is, talking back, kicking,hitting throwing fits, I have been the bad cop, His dad drives a truck and is gone a week at a time. I just don't know how to deal with this anymore. and I am angry. how do I let the anger go. His dad and I dated before I ever met his son. 5 months after I met him they moved in and a year later we got married and still things have not changed with his behavior.

Is his mother in his life? How long has it been since his parents were together? How long have you been in his life? I would say that with two absent parents, he is acting out, and he's probably feeling a lot of anger. Has he seen a counsellor/therapist at all?
