I am a Single mother of an amazing 4yrs old.. 7 Months ago I started a new relationship after being with my son's father for 5 years. My guy is wonderful with my son and they have a great bond.. Since my Ex and I have split ways, He has not been making things easy as well as not dealing with his son like he should. Since the visits to his father's has slowed way down, he has been acting out with at home. The not listening, the repeating myself, the crying, the whining, the talking back, the being sneaky, but he's wonderful in school and outside our home. I have no clue what to do and I refuse to beat him. I feel like I'm losing control of my kid when we are home and it is very stressful.

You just have to be consistent with him and make him keep following the rules. The stability and structure at your house should help him feel secure there.

These things are tough on kids. They have to live with the decisions their parents make, and don't have any choice. He's probably very frustrated about "losing" his father and (even if he like the new BF) is probably feeling insecure about if this guy will stick around. Be patient with him, and keep showing him the right way to behave. If it gets really unmanageable, he may need counseling to help him get through his issues.
