I need some advice about how to handle my teen stepson. I've already talked with his father. I don't feel comfortable being alone in the house with him and it is getting worse each day.

Any advice?

Can you elaborate on the problem? Not sure how to help otherwise.

How long have you been stepping?
Does he live with you full time or is he just visiting?
Did something specific happen/when did you notice your discomfort?
Are other kids involved?
What did you say to DH and how did he respond?
Are you home all day or out of the home mostly?

My default answer is though, that this is primarily an issue between you and DH, not an issue between you and SS. You and the dad need to work together.

stop being in the house alone with him.

It really is just that simple.

If your dh is relying on you to provide care then he will have to hire other help.
