My husband and son fight all the time. My husband is a step dad to my two kids.
He has been in our life for 10 years since my son was 8 years old . They use to get alone but when my son hit teenage years it got bad. All they do is fight my son doesn't want to listen to either one of us.
He runs away a lot his been in trouble with the law. When They Fight in the Middle , I'm the one who's feeling get hurt. Currently my son took off again to stay with random people cause he don't want to go by our rules. All i do is cry. I'm stressed out. My son cuss us out. No respect at all. All i want is for everyone to get alone. Please help

Okay, firstly, your husband is an adult. He shouldn't be "fighting" with a teenager. He should be the adult in the relationship. There is no need to argue over rules - he either follows them, or there are clear and consistent consequences.

Anyway, too late for that now. Your son is 18. If he can't follow the rules in your home, stop letting him come home.

Hi loretta,
Do you know whats going on for your son for him to act this way? I know kids change during the teen years, but alot of times something else is going on for them

My step brother and dad fought all the time when I was younger. Sometime you have to step back and breath. When your son returns site down with him and talke to him, but also let hime tell you what is going on sometimes there is a reason he is acting the way he is. Maybe he feels like he is not being treated like he should, or he wants more time with you, or he just dose not understand how to handle what he is feeling ether way talke to him like an adult.
