    Myself, Wife, and two stepsons, USA.
    Stepsons live with father (wife's ex-husband). We see rarely by their choice. We cycle through periods of estrangement and re-connection. Boys are essentially unsupervised.

    Difficult Stepson: 16, soon to be 17. Diagnosed with anxiety and depression. Unmedicated. Essentially a dropout, enrolled in online school but not completing assignments. Not working. Provided with a car and spending money by father. Explosive, violent temper when confronted or thwarted. Has become violent with father, mother, and brother. Currently in his first relationship with a girl. We worry about how he will handle a potential ending of this relationship.

    Younger Stepson: 15. Victimized by Difficult Stepson. Mostly OK but definitely impacted by brother and family.
