Advice needed.......
I have been married to my husband for 4 years and 2 of the 4 years his youngest son lived with us, which was hell and then he returned to his mother. During the time we had him ( knowing he had problems) age 14 then I tried to be the great step mom. I did everything and he was horrible. He failed school, skipped tutoring I set up for him, stole from us, lied costantly, ate everything in the house, hoarded old crusty dishes in his room, peed his bed daily and hoarded knives which kinda scared me, and on and on. Now he is coming back because no one can get him to go to school and I know it is going to cause trouble. His fathjer is gone 14 hours a day and I told him I will in no way take care of this kid and his father hates to admit that he lies, steals, etc and does not want or have the time to deal with him, so what should I do?

If I knew that the adults at the boy's house were going to be having conversation with and supervising ALL the kids who were over, just like they were a bunch of 2 year-olds, I might go for 10 o'clock. If the adults supervise like a lot of adults--in the house, but in another room busy with other stuff, then NOPE!

Your mom is right. Your mom is smart. You are a very lucky kid.
