Hi @Solo_mama, thank you for sharing. It seems as though you are in a really difficult position with your family. What you are going through must be so stressful and upsetting, especially when you have done a lot to try and help the situation. I can hear that you love and care for your stepson but are not sure how to help him or deal with some of his behaviour. As you mentioned, your stepson has a few things going on with school and his relationship with his biological mother. I can imagine that this may be impacting some of his behaviour and there may be something worth exploring underneath all of that. I do want to let you know that you aren't alone - a lot of parents face these kinds of issues. You can have a read of other parents who have shared their stories here.
It sounds like you have tried everything you can, so I am wondering if your family has thought of attending counselling? This can give you and your stepson a chance to get some support individually, or you could attend together to try and navigate some of the issues you are experiencing as a family.
