New Marriage, New Boundaries: What is probably happening in your particular situation is that your husband has not set up good boundaries for this new marriage.

Often, you expect things to run the same way in one marriage that they did in another. But luckily, there is an easy way to set up boundaries in your new marriage that are not always apparent.

Custody orders need to be followed to the letter -- for now.

Again, regardless of how nuts you think she is, she is still your step-son's mother. In fact, the best advice any future or present step-mother can take is to always speak kindly and respectfully of a child's parents. Boundaries Help You See On Which Side The Problem Lies: The advice I give to all my clients with this kind of issue is to draw up boundaries.

What this will do is to make it clear that this problem is between you and your husband. Any problem between you and your husband will affect your stepson.
