Why are you living with your boyfriend's stepmother? I, personally, am not a big fan of moving in with your boyfriend (or girlfriend, for that matter) when you have a child already. Unless, of course, the person you live with is the child's other parent. But, I definitely wouldn't have moved in with someone that can't even get their own place, for that very reason.

She may be the type that considers it "my house, my rules". That's how my house is. I will enforce my house rules and "parent" any kid in my home, up to and including appropriate discipline when the kids need it. My guests all understand and welcome the structure. If you don't want a non family member handling your child, then you shouldn't live in her house, to be quite honest.

You can try to sit down and ask her to not interfere, but be aware that she is allowing you to live in her home, and if you push, she can put you out.
