Help.. my kids step dad is out of order

All comments read and duly noted... especially the one about how the net is not the place to get personal, I left the names out and have stuck to the facts that I have gathered from my son and my ex-wife.

Trust me, we are all smart intelligent people, not your regular ricky lake white-trash. My wife is an Msc, my son a straight A student or normal build for an 11yr old going on 12 who loves sports, reading books and playing music, he gets upset when he witnesses injustice but he hates violence and wouldn't even fight the school bully when I once (wrongly) thought that my son standing up for himself and smacking the bully around while I watched would be a solution. My son chose to tough it out, for 4 years. He recently befriended the bully, drew him into thier inner circle of friends and now they are all friends, harmony has returned to the classroom. I say this for no other reason than to defend my sons honour.

He is an honourable kid, make no mistake. The slapping he gave the step-dad... well he has tried to slap me on the mouth when I was teasing him about liking Jessica Andersson... a playful slap... I apologised for teasing him so openly, we then had a long talk where I told him never to slap me again... but I wonder if the slap he gave step-dad was the same type of playful gesture, or whether he has pent up feelings... either way, we have since talked about not slapping anyone, and following the response he got from step-dad I think he has learned his lesson.

Step-dad has always been a decent chap, well educated and pleasant, I have often thought how lucky my kids are to have a step dad like him... I would like to think that he is full of remorse. I sent a read receipt with the mail I sent him, and he read it this morning, he has not replied, I take the lack of negative response as a sign of remorse.

The mother (my ex) has been away on business, but comes home today, I'll have a long talk with her, her 40th b-day tomorrow, so the kids want to be home with her tonight until saturday lunch when I'll collect them again. By saturday afternoon we will know which way this has swung... I am sure that by now step-dad will be more subdued, this will go one way or the other.. and thanks to the discussion here and elsewhere I am now fully aware of my options and rights, and will act accordingly.

Thanks for all your input...

Conk.

Don't you have to be a citizen to vote?

How about I just volunteer for your campaign?

Ok I'll maintain your website or something and you don't mention that any more.
