Are you a mom that has been thrown into a whirlwind of dealing with a stepmother for your child? Are you a stepmom that treats your husband’s kids like your own and their biological mom doesn’t want to give you credit for it or is down right jealous or vice versa? Does the stepmother over “step” her boundaries and not want to put into consideration the biological mom’s roll too? Are you in a situation as a stepmom where you feel the biological mom just doesn’t appreciate anything you do? Those scenarios are far too common and sadly it is the children that suffer from being in the middle. Recently the term stepmom has been better termed as “bonus mom” as it has more postive associations than the previous term. I think it is great that children have an extra set of parents that love them! It makes it even better when ALL parents in “the village” raising them gets along. Children are often put in between the jealousy or “drama” of parent and/or bonus parent and honestly it is emotionaly exhausting for them! It is about the children not the parents. The parents didn’t workout, sobeit, but they should all work together despite their differences and openly communicate to make the village environment a great one for the children! What do you think? It isn’t the easiest thing but it can be fixed if both sides want it bad enough for the childrens’ sake.
