Father Grounds His Son When He Calls His Step-Father This.

Parenting is not an easy task and even more hard when it’s a blended family. Each parent has its own way of dealing with their children. Disciplining the kids is important. Read the story to know why there was an argument in this blended family and do you agree with the son being punished?

I’m 43M, my son is 16M. I’m divorced (have been for a few years now) and my ex remarried recently.

Her new husband (Jonathan) is black (we’re white). He and my ex are now expecting a baby together. He also has 2 teenage boys himself.

My ex and I share custody, but our son spends most of his time at my place because he has more room and privacy here.

Last weekend he was at his mom’s and on Sunday, he called me all upset saying to come pick him up. I rushed over there and found out that he got into a fight with Jonathan over some chores and Jonathan locked him out of wifi and banned him from video games until he does his chores (which is how my ex and I also discipline him, and Jonathan has our permission to do the same if my son acts out – he can use the same methods he uses with his sons). More long term/serious punishments are of course decided between my ex and I, but “no video games today” type of thing is totally fine for Jonathan to do.

My ex and Jonathan then told me that my son got all upset over this punishment and told Jonathan to ” f*ck off”. Jonathan then told him to stop talking like that, to which my son replied “you and your sons ruined my life, so you dont get to tell me what to do. I won’t take orders from a N anyway”.

I asked my son if this is all true. He said yes. He actually called him the N word (because “well isn’t it true”).

I lost it and told my son he is grounded for the whole month of December. My ex agreed. He is obviously annoyed and angry, because he had tons of plans with his friends.

He said that I am overreacting to one word and am being unfair. My brother and mom agree with my son, and are saying that the punishment doesn’t fit the crime. Am I Overreacting.?
