Is it normal , stepchild refusing to visit dad because he is afraid of me? Do he have that right?

Update: His mother has full custody and says if the kid does visit I can't be there when he does. I don't think this is fair! His father and I think he is manipulating this situation.I kind of said some things to the child which he took literally and now he is afraid to be around me.
Update 2: The mom didn't like I was physically disciplining her child. Or that I think a trip to juvenile hall would really help him.
Update 3: no Iam the stepgirlfriend. I want the child to think of me as their mom.
