Just need to vent!!!!!

I have two stepsons, ages 12 and 15. It's to the point now where we barely even speak. Fortunately, they don't live with me and my husband.

Over protective mom and a step-

I’m at a loss for what to do and how to handle issues dealing with one of my step children. I have my own child, and he was no piece of cake raising.

There's been a few changes in CO the last 3 months taking SS3 from living with us full time to 50/50. Since he's 3, before he went back with BM he loved me.
