10 year old step son is abusive to me and my 2 year old son
Ive never posted on one of these before but completely lost. Ill start at the beginning so everyone has the best understanding of my situation. My husband has 3 children from a previous marriage. I have a daughter from a previous marriage and my husband aand i have an almost 3 year old son together. I have been with my husband for almost 5 year. And on December 14th 2017 we got a call from his ex wife bc CPS was taking the kids from her. She convinced them to let her bring the kids to me so they didnt have to go in the foster system until my husband got home from work. He is a boat captain and works 28 days and off for 14. So he was not available to pick them up. The very next day CPS stoped by to make sure they were infact in my care. According to the children and CPS they were extremely abused and neglected by step father and mother. Instead of taking a drug test and doing what needed to be done to get her kids back the mother decided to sign over all legal rights to my husband and get weekend visitation. Then disappeared. She finally showed back up at the end of may this year. And has decided to bring my husband back to court claming that we stole the children and forced her to sign over her rights. During the court process she still has her weekend visitation. During her visit she has caused a lot of problems. My 13 year old step daughter is cutting her self and my 10 year old step son has become very violent and abusive. They clam they want to live with their mom again. And are willing to do whatever it takes. For the most part my 8 year old step son has stayed the same. But they have called CPS on me claming that i abuse them. Which got closed out bc it wasnt true. But now the 10 year old has been to a mental health facilities 3 times due to harmful behavior to others at school. He hits and punches me all the time. And im constantly being cussed out. Now he has turned the abusive behavior to my 2 year old son. He has been punched in the stomach, shoved down the steps, thrown to the ground, pushed of the trampoline, yelled at and cussed at. The 10 year old says he does it to hurt me bc he blames me for not being able to go back with his mom. He has gotten out of control and its all day everyday. I have done my best to help him and love him like my own since the day he moved in. But now my toddler is suffering and i dont know what to do. Im just the step mom and cant make any decisions. My husband is completely lost and unsure what to do either. Does anyone have any advice?
