You don't mention the ages involved, but this sounds like either a TV soapie or behaviour thought to be typical of the poor folks of the American Southern States. You are dating the father of your daughter's boyfriend ?
Now you feel there's a problem because your daughter has broken up with his son - why ? Was their relationship the basis for yours ? WHy can't you leave your daughter at home at the age of 17 ? Is your home so dangerous ? Do you really need his son to take care of your daughter while you go out with the father ? Is that a form of babysitting ?
I wonder if there are any other guys here who have been in the same situation, outside of a sitcom.

I suppose that this can happen,although somewhat rare.There should be no need to leave your daughter behind OR leaving her at home if you wish (she is 17).
I think " cybershrink"  is being a bit harsh here but your situation is rather unusual.
If you are going to continue in this relationship,you need to find a way to include the kids
