Is my stepson being disrespectful?

My husband 30 year old step soon lives in my deceased mothers house rent free any his two children every other weekend when you go over there it's trash everywhere and food in the kids room from the weekend before. On different occasion he has called my awful names one time through a table over.. But to say all that we before have children from previous marriages a we both do way more for them than we should. And believe I'm not saying my children are angels in the least. My oldest daughter which I adopt and then her sister after she was born I adopted her (their mother was in prison) moved to another city and I was alittle upset because she really helped me with her younger sister after my oldest son passed away I struggle sometimes ( which is a while nother story) so me and my husband decided we weren't going to help the kids anymore. So a few months later my daughter's car breaks down I tell her I'm sorry you choose to go live there I can't help you. It broke my heart. fast forward a month we are on vacation and his son and kids are there he said something to upset my son and my son excused his self then his son continuing called ending in calling me a name and throwing the table over my husband told me to get in the house and shut up. after that we didn't hear from him till one afternoon he has a wreck and calls his dad his dad ask should I go check on him I said of course make sure he is okay. He comes back home and ask if his son can use our car I say no. So he continues on but sneaks in the house and calls his mother to tell her he needs a car. Which she runs to the rescue. My children have no grandparents it's just me and them.Am I wrong in thinking that is disrespectful

Personally I would feel the same way as you. As a guy he probably assumes that since it’s not “him” helping that it’s okay but he just doesn’t realize that it’s not fair when you flat out told your own daughter no. I would sit down and talk to him about the situation and how you feel about it. Personally, again just my opinion and what I would do, is tell him that since he did that you’ll be helping your daughter with at least half of what she needs. His kids have both parents, while your kids only have you. Either way definitely needs a conversation

You can’t control what the mother is going to do for your step son but I think it is very disrespectful that your husband went behind your back and called his ex. It is also disrespectful that you both agreed you would no longer help any of the kids and then ask you if it was ok to loan the car.

They are acting that way because they have been allowed to get away with their behavior. I mean you are letting your step son living in your mother’s house free and destroy it without any consequences…that’s why he is doing it…he knows you aren’t going to put him out.

You need to cut the cord! They treat youthat way becuase you allow it even thoug you mean right. Even Jesus Chrsit had boundaries. There is a scripture in which one of Jesus Diciples asks him for the bag of money n told him he would guve it to the poor, but becuase Jesus knew his disciples heart that he was actually planning in stealing it he told his disciple “NO.” Your husband n you need to set up boundaries. You guys need to advice your adult kids how to save for emergencies and not to depend on you n yoir husband. If your husband’s step son won’t respect you n not even paying rent you need to ask him him to rent a room somewhere else, I mean maybe he is disable or maybe he does work but doesn’t make enouht money, is understandable but he could had saved all those months that he had rent free to move out. Your daugther that used to help you with your younger daugther is not her responsibility. If she wanted to help then that is awesome but if she didn’t you could not force her. Now if she was an adult living with not paying u rent not going to school n you guys made the agreement she could stay with you rent free as long as she help with your younger daigther then that is diferent story as long as she did not overwork hours looking after your daugther. Of course im a big believer in praying about everything first. :pray: sometimes there may b exceptions but there is no reason why anyone shall call you names. There is a book called "boundaries from Dr. Henry cloud. " . Please buy it n have u n your husband read it. Also it sounds like if both u n your husband have codependency with your kids n his step son, basically your husband and you are always saving your kids which enables them to not grow be responsible adults. You can fund help for that in a 12 step Chrsitian program near a church near you or thru zoom meetings the name of the program is called Celebrate Recovery. Google it to find a location near u.

Often times our choices lead to our own suffering. Stop enabling your adult children. Put up firm boundaries. State it clearly for everyone involved and don’t back track on them.
People who fight boundaries, are the ones who are no longer benefiting from you not having them.

Your stepson is not paying rent, he’s disrespectful, and violent.
He does not need to be handed a house by your graces.
He is a grown man, he needs to act like one.

She said that her and her husband both agree to not help their kids anymore because they are grown. She has had to tell her daughter no but then her husband’s son needed a car so she also told him no, but the step son and her husband just called his parents and had them help his son (her step son) get another car. She does not have her parents she can call on for help. So she is saying it is unfair that he did.

Is my stepson being disrespectful?

My husband’s 30 year old step son, lives in my deceased mothers house rent free with his two children every other weekend. When you go over there it’s trash everywhere, and food in the kids room from the weekend before. On different occasion he has called me awful names, one time threw a table over… But to say all that; we before have children from previous marriages, and we both do way more for them than we should.

You should have the papers stating that is your house. Get an eviction started asap. Find out if you can kick him out sooner rather than later.
Once the house is empty, leave your husband

You guys had an agreement that he fails to uphold. “Your” children and “his” children should uphold the same standards. Also if the son wants to be a little puke EVICT him. At the least DO NOT let him live rent free anymore. If your husband and has an issue with it, I geuss you have a house to move to. :tipping_hand_woman:t2: I would.

Hmmm what the husband’s name so I can ask how this women behaves towards her own kids and step kids because obviously u guys are doing something to make the step son snap no one just out rights calls someone names then throws a table out of anger sounds like a one sided goof story from another ass of a step parent as usual.

Don’t be a push over make him pay rent and give him jobs to do if he refuses kick him out. Tell him you are not his mother cleaning up after him. Tell him grow up and act like a adult instead of using you.

Curious of the ages of all the “children” involved first off. I only see that the stepson is 30…how old are your daughters? Do you have a living son as well? (My sympathies on the loss of your one son)

  1. You and your husband need to talk about boundaries with all the adult children. (I don’t know if they are all adults. They need to be the same and you both need to be consistent. If that doesn’t happen, then maybe you need to do some serious thinking about whether the stress the marriage puts on you is worth it.

  2. The stepson needs to (at minimum) pay a reasonable rent and be held accountable as a “tenant” if he is going to live in your late mother’s house. Personally, I would probably evict him because he sounds like he has no respect for you at all…and is violent to boot.

Any adult children should be treated as such, meaning adults should be paying rent, their own bills, etc. Help them only if you want to. Don’t forget, you’ll need your own substantial savings when you guys retire.

Kick the little shit out ur mothers house … how dare he disrespect u like that.

He deserves nothing the entitled little shit.

Sell it and divide it between ur daughters… or even better sell it and go enjoy ur life and travel and make fantastic memories for urself… life is way too short…

That boy needs a gd old fashioned hiding

Your daughter needed help but didn’t get it meanwhile your stepson did, that’s a no, what’s good for 1 is good for the other and in the end the help he needed was a car??!! He lives rent free, he should have had a car, time to grow the hell up and your husband needs to wake up too, if that was my child and he threw anything or did what he did I would of popped him in his face and told him to get the hell out of my mamas house, he’s 30 defs not a child but that’s jus my opinion

If you’re not bailing any of them out he needs to pay rent I’d evict him and clean it up and either move in myself because I don’t tolerate that BS from a supposed partner or I would rent it to a legitimate renter and use that money to maintain/pay property taxes ect on it. Then put excess $ into savings for your children. That’s YOUR kids inheritance from their grandparents that you’re giving to his son to trash. He has a grandmother who drops everything like that? Are your kids in her will or just him? If your kids are not in her will and he is then you need to sever that now and get him out of the house before it’s trashed beyond repair and either use it yourself or turn it into income.

So he lives in your house rent free and disrespectful. And u let him :woman_shrugging:t5::woman_shrugging:t5::woman_shrugging:t5: time to put your mum’s house on rent

First and foremost, your stepson is 30! His ass should be paying rent. I def would be telling him he is gonna start paying rent AND keeping the house clean or he can hit the road. If husband doesn’t like it then tell him they can get a place together. Also I’m conflicted about you not helping your daughter because she moved, but you got a whole grown man child you are letting destroy your mom’s house for free, makes no sense.

It’s not fair that he wants to go against the rules both of you set in place for your kids. Also that’s YOUR families house if he wants to be disrespectful he needs to grow up and get his own damn house!! He is 30 time to grow up and he won’t do it with daddy holding his hand. Sorry if that sounded rude but I can’t stand an adult child disrespecting a parent when they are pretty much still living off the tit

First of all, Refusing to help your daughter when her car broke down just bcuz you’re upset she chose to have her own life instead of choosing to help you raise her sister is selfish n narcissistic. Second of all, if your husband is giving in to his grown a$$ son’s behavior you should probably seek marriage counseling. To answer your question in short? Yes, he’s disrespectful.

You say you won’t help the kids yet you’re letting the stepson live rent free in your mother’s house. That is helping him out so so much. You not helping your daughter because she moved away is you being an ass. That’s unreasonable.That is her sister you want help with it’s not her child nor her responsibility to help you. Get your priorities straight. Help all of the kids or help none. Yes that 30 year old was disrespectful, but so are you and your husband. All of you need therapy and the daughter that moved away probably had a very good reason to do so.

I think you need to separate the issues.
The house is 1 issue then the relationship is another.
I would put the house through a realestate at a low rent to cover the realestate fees.
That way they can do inspections etc to make sure its all up to standard and if they need to ever be removed the realestate will deal with that.
They can live how they want aslong as they are not damaging the property but I completely understand how frustrating it would be seeing it like that. Thats why I say get a realestate because if u stand up and say anything it seems like there will just be an issue.
As for the way he treats use thats not ok. But that’s a family issue and nothing to do with him living in the house. He should be more respectful but I would just distance yourself a little so when use actually see each other it might be more fun then problems.
I also think as they are both your children you shoukd either help them all or not help any. Helping them if they are appreciative then thats fine if their not then they can work it out themselves Best of luck

I think you should possibly try helping people and they might actually want to help you out sometimes

Doesn’t anyone know how to write or use periods in a sentance.

That’s why over 60% of second marriages w kids don’t work out. Usually the parent will side w their kid, and leaves their second partner feeling SOL. The step son needs to be out on his own (paying rent somewhere else), and your husband needs to grow a pair and tell him you can’t come over until you are respectful toward my wife. You need to tell him to start paying rent or get out.

You are disrespected by your husband and his son. Your husband should never let his son treat you like that or use your mother’s house rent free and destroy it. YOUR children should be using it or you should sell it and give the money to YOUR children or be able to help them with that money. Either way your husband and his family bring nothing but pain and suffering to you, your heart, and make you push your children away. It’s time for you to think very hard about what is best for YOUR family. They come first :heartpulse::heartpulse::heartpulse::heartpulse:
