Being a step mom is hard enough, but not having any biological children to base parenting skills on, is even tougher.When you try and discuss how you're feeling with your DH/SO, I bet he doesn't understand, does he? I'm also betting that when you try and discuss how you're feeling with a friend, they don't understand, either; especially if they have children. They can't understand, because they're not where we are!
Let's talk about how we deal with our step kids, the bio-moms, and other parenting issues. Everyone can express their thoughts freely here, everyone is allowed their own opinions. If you want to be negative..you can be negative! There are enough people in our lives to share the positive with and no one to share the negative. We understand ~ trust me!!
NO flaming will EVER be tolerated!! This list is restricted so that there will be no lurking bio moms.
This list is only for step mom's who do *NOT* have biological children of their own
I know you sometimes wonder if you should have gotten involved with someone who has children. Not because you don't love them ...because these kids don't listen to you or respect you ~ does any of this sound familiar? We have "all" been there.
We have ladies here who are brand spankin' new step moms. There are other ladies who have been a step mom for 5-10 years and there are also some ladies who have been a step mom for 20 years.
I hope you will join us, and feel free to vent to us, anytime. Remember, this list is for step mothers *WITHOUT* biological children.
Hugs & Stuff,
