Am I doing this right?

I'm only in my early 20's but last year started seeing a lovely man who I met through work, everything's going well and I've since met his young son from a previous relationship...

However, BF doesn't see his son often (Once a month) due him living with his Mum a couple of hours away and I'm never sure how to act when his son comes for visits. We both see long term potential in this relationship so I don't want to become too much of a jokey friend with his son, mainly because in future I don't want him to think I'm going to let him get away with anything he wants and go against his dad. I also worry about being too friendly and inadvertently stepping on his mum's toes by him telling her about his visits and me being there. I've met his mum and her new partner and it's all quite amicable and friendly. BF say's not to worry but I've never had relationships with anyone with children before confused and want to get this right!

Any advice from anyone in a similar situation would be appreciated.
