My son is so mean. When I try to displine him he just laughs at me. I don't know what to do anymore. Me and hisdad just got divorced and he says he do t act like that at his house . Am I a bad parent?

He's probably testing the boundaries at your house. Divorce is a big thing, have you reached out to the school to have a counselor talk to him? Have you thought about getting him into counseling? When my ex and I went through our divorce I let my sons teacher know so that he could let us know if there were any problems. I did a lot to minimize the changes on my son but there were still rules in place that had to be followed. I still get "we don't do that at dads" and I remind both my kids that there are different rules at different houses.
