18 year old son pees and poops
An_221762 posted:
My 18 year old step son has adhd, bi-polar and urinary trouble. He refuses to take his medication. He is failing school and has no interest in working. My discouragement comes with my husband who enables him. He makes excuses for his controlling behavior. He is aggressive and is not disciplined by my husband when he disrespects him. Are there any other moms with this same issue? I need advise. My marriage is in jeopardy.

If your husband doesn't see that his son is struggling and not functioning well as an 18 y.o. adult, then I don't see what you can do as a step-parent.

This is a tough spot for you to be in, and I would take a hard look at your marriage.

It sounds like his Father needs to take a stand and tell this young man he needs to take his meds, he needs to go to his Dr. appointments and either enroll in college or get a job. His future is at stake, and for the father to turn a blind eye is really sad.

Hi Anon,

I am sorry to hear your family is struggling. It sounds like there are a few issues to overcome. Have you and your husband thought about counseling to talk about your concerns?

In a quick search I found this article, Divorce More Likely in ADHD Families . Thought you may be interested.

Hopefully others with similar experience will pop in to offer support.

Please keep us posted,
