But when he complains about something I take it so personally like he is attacking my parenting. Not just frustrated with taking care of 4 and 5 yo boys.

So, my MAIN piece of advice is to try to relax and understand that you complain about your kids, and if you expect your SO to be a parental figure, he needs to complain now and then too....
Otherwise, I'm not sure what to tell you. I also have a hard time relaxing while my SO disciplines my daughter, but it hasn't been that bad to just sit back and let them build their own relationship.... For me, the hard relationship ius between me and SO's son....
