My husband has two sons, 18 and 13. The 18 year old was diagnosed with brain cancer. The 13 year old, is indifferent to his brother, mainly because his mother has had several boyfriends during his life after the divorce of his parents. I am the wife of his father. Me, I am a widow at age 43 who lost her first husband of 11 years (he was 41) when he went in for a procedure at the VA in Denver and died 3 days later in my arms. However, he wanted me to go on and I found a wonderful man after. He is a VERY loving father, who unfortunately, has an x-wife who cheated on him and he left her.
The problem is the 13 year old. He thinks that I am too structured and "crazy", since I want him to not play his games all day, to pick up his clothes (well, you know the scenerio". Anyway, his mother, wants to be is "FRIEND". However, that entails, no dicipline, no bed time, no nothing.
I am sick of it and I need help and advise. Since there may be legal issues coming to bear. HELP
