Hi Katykat.... Glad your husband is starting to help out. True your stepson thinks you will not involve your DH because it will cause conflict between you too. He will have more respect for you later on it just takes time. Try and stay relaxed don't yell when speaking to him just explain what you want him to do. Do you live in your own home? Maybe he can help out with lawn work or cleaning around the house for an allowance. Does he like to cook? Nothing wrong with him helping out with dinner. Explain to him what ever he learns now will help him when he is living on his own. Sueanne
