My son is 12 and has been diagnosed with ADHD and my daughter is 10. Their step mother verbally and emotionally abuses my son on a daily basis but does not treat my daughter the same way. This has been going on for years. She calls him names, sends him to his room when his dad is not home, ignores him and refuses to talk to him, she tells him he is a waste, she makes food he will not eat for dinner, knowing he does not like it and then tells him if he will not eat it then he doesn't need to eat. She talks about him to other kids' parents, telling them how stupid he is. She works at the juvenille detention facility and she treats him like he is a criminal. What are my opitons to legally stop this behavior? What steps do I need to take to be able to take legal action and have a case?
