If your stepfather pushes; shoves; twists your arms; slaps you or threatens to do bodily harm to you; swears at you then no, it is not alright for him to constantly bully you and if this is happening you need to talk to your mother. If your mother is not available then speak to your grandparents or other close relatives.
