Children

Ok, they are 2 very different people, and she will never take the father''s advise. So we can only talk to the child, we dont have another option. What can we do, so that this child listens? He said he wants to be just like his mother! He even chose the same sport she did in school!!! He doesnt care about his father that much....

I think we are losing him, just like the mother wanted. He loves that there is no rules at his mothers house...So when he is with us, it seems boring and dull and that we do those things because we dont like him....

I think he knows whats going on and just taking advantage of it.

Family therapy, indeed. No doubt he is taking advantage of the situation, as is his biomom, who is apparently unconcerned that her methods may raise an unpleasant kid who will run into worse problems ahead.

As suggested before family therapy/councilling for you hubby, ex wife and partner and of course the 10 year old.
Did you try posting on the step parenting forum?
Wearing hair gel and choosing a sport his mother favours are hardly huge issues but there is no doubt some communication difficulties between all parties here.
