If you’ve found your way to this site, you’re probably a stepmom in desperate need of some help. I’ve been there, and I can tell you there is a way to keep your sanity and your stepfamily intact.
As a stepmom, chances are you’ve had some, if not all, of the following thoughts:
- This is the hardest thing I’ve ever done!
- I feel like an outsider in my own home.
- Why do my needs always come last?
- My husband doesn’t understand my concerns. I can’t talk to him about his children without him getting defensive.
- I dread the thought of my stepchildren coming over.
- My stepchildren don’t respect me.
- My husband lets his children and ex-wife walk all over him.
- Why does my husband’s ex-wife hate me when all I try to do is care for HER children?
- Nobody understands me.
Now breathe a sigh of relief; you’re not alone.
