There was a situation between my son and my husband. My son is 14 yrs old and has a bit of an anger issue. My son got anger and felt threaten so he got quite angry with my husband and said he would hit him. My husband which is the step parent choose to tell me to move out of the way and told my son to go ahead and hit me as he was raising is arms over and over again. This of course cause my son to lose control and the police were called. They said it was againest the law for my husband to provoke my son in that manner and he could be arrest for domestic violance and child endangerment even though my son became out of control. I have told my husband to never do that and to leave the room so I can calm my son but he refuses to do so.


Thank you

It is the directing of the child to strike which is the problem. Discpline with your permission is not a problem. There should be no problem with the step parent disciplining with your permission, so long as no antagonism is occurring such as provoking to strike. Please let me know if there is anything more specific you would like addressed.
