You and your DP need to establish some house rules that apply to all the kids the same. Since your DSS is so small this is a good time to establish this but it CANNOT be only you who is enforcing the rules with DSS, it in fact can't be you who mostly enforces the rules. This will set you up for hard times and resentment for DSS. That said, most small kids I think need to have good boundaries and my kids always do better with a somewhat reliable schedule. Good Luck

I guess it depends, would it be a non-profit that got grants to provide this service or would it be something for profit that parents would have to pay for and how much?

nak. You can give your LO any name you want, it does not have to be either of your names it could just be a name you make up. You don't have to have a legal name change yet to give your LO the name you intend to use- just give them that name and you can change yours later. Generally to do a name change and this may be different in different states you file in probate court, pay the fees and then have a waiting period where you publish notice of the name change so any...
Contact the school and get them to add you so that all the mailings they send out go to you as well as DSD's mom and then you will not be relying on her to inform you about what is going on. Good Luck this sounds super hard and yucky
I read and didn't want to not respond. I think what you are feeling seems totally appropriate and your DSS mom seems to be an incredibly selfish person. I think you are doing things fine. You don't bring up your frustrations to or around you DSS and you find a safe way to vent in a very frustrating situation. I think your DSS will probably figure things out on his own about hte people in his life and will know that your DH fought for him and his mom made him fight for him...
