Son and Step dad dynamic

Angelica - posted on 10/04/2015 ( 1 mom has responded )




My 15 year old son and my husband have always had a tense relationship. My son can be very condescending and disrespectful, but my husband instead of talking or understanding were the anger is coming from gets angry and shuts down or starts yelling. Me and my husband have been married for 9 years and he loves my daughter they have an excellent dynamic and he is her step parent as well. My oldest and him are the ones that are always at each others throats and then it causes a fight between my husband and I because I come to my child's defense. My oldest is in his ugly teenage years but I just deal differently with it then my husband I just don't want my son to feel that I let him down. I also don't want this to lead to divorce for my marriage.
