This sounds like a pretty stressful position you are in, and you're certainly not alone Conflict in blended families with differing parenting styles can be tough to navigate, thank you for sharing so openly about what you're going through.
It must be really hard feeling like your husband isn't on the same page as you with responding to when your step son engages in these behaviours. This content is from an organisation we partner with, the Raising Childrens Network and it is all about setting boundaries and rules in blended families, it might have a couple of good tips in it to check out.
It sounds like you and your mother in law have been able to have an open dialogue about what you see as appropriate behaviour, is that right? Has she been able to support you with these issues?
I'm also wondering what happens when your husband decides to believe your son over you and your mother in law? How do these conversations resolve?
