I'm new to this so I'm not sure how this works but I need to give it a try to maybe get some helpful advice.
My step son has told me straight out that he doesn't like. He has called me a "raging c*&^" before while his dad said/did nothing. This deeply disturbs me that someone would allow their child to do and say this along with all of his other disrespectful behavioral issues.
I really love his dad but am not sure I want myself and my toddler to continue to be around this environment. Any advice???

Thank u all for your time and advice. I've been trying to deal with this situation for a long time but just didn't know where to turn. I've tried leaving multiple times (before and after our toddler was born) but for some reason I always end up back in the household. I'm beginning to wonder if I'm just MEANT to be here. Not sure why. Maybe to be a positive influence on the 13 yr old ss? I don't know. I love his dad but It seems like the dad,in a way, enables his son to disrespect me. I thought I heard or read that the bf should stand behind the stepparent to give it the GO TEAM effort hence allowing the guidance of the child to work and allowing the relationship to work. Is that not the case nowdays?
