Basically, he has had this opinion that he runs the household when his dad isn't around. He's disrespectful and refuses to listen to anything I say, argumentative and so on. How does a step-mom maintain her sanity and relationship with this stuff going on? His dad doesn't really punish him in any way for the behavior, he says he's going to but then he doesn't. As a result the behavior has continued since June and seems to be getting worse. I'm at the end of my rope with him.
