step father

I feel my children should be more partial to me because I'm their mother and I raised them but my son always wants to have fun with his new stepfather and only listens to him and totally disrespects me. It breaks my heart

The stepfather should have your back and help teach the child respect and who's in charge. As a new step parent, I'm sure he just wants to feel accepted by the child, so he may be overdoing it a bit to get on your son's good side. But ultimately everyone would be better off for him to risk some hurt feelings and tell your son to listen to you. The bio/step parents should have a united and consistent stance when dealing with the kids.
