I would love some advice. My husband and I have been married for 6 years and have 4 kids between us. My two (18 and 21) look to him as a father figure because their dad chooses not to be in their lives. He loves them as his own. His kids (20 and 26) are a different and difficult story. From the beginning they’ve made things hard. Their mom tries to control every aspect of their lives and plays victim to everything. Anything my husband says to them falls on deaf ears because they seek their moms validation…which they’ll never get. Over the past year his daughter (26) and I have been working on our relationship as she’s starting to see her mother for who she is. The problem I have is his son(20). If this kid opens his mouth he’s lying about everything for no reason. He will not speak to me because I’ve called him out numerous times and have no time for disrespect. I point blank told him on 3 separate occasions that I don’t believe anything he says. I’m not rude just matter of fact. I genuinely want the best for him. My husband knows what I’ve said to him as we have discussions about his behavior. I told my husband that it really hurts me that he’s ok with this kid lying constantly to both of us and there’s no consequences to his actions. My husband always reply’s “well what do you want me to do, stop talking to him?” Actually yes, I think nothing will change if it’s not addressed. This kid mooches off people and can’t keep a job because he’s “so stressed”. Am I wrong for wanting him to distance himself from his son? Let me also add that there have been several times where this kid had no problem blocking his dad for weeks and even months from contacting him. Thoughts?
