  • I would let them know you are not replacing their mom in any way shape or form first. It's hard for younger kids to have a "new" parent in their life. I know this first hand. Just remember to be a parent first and a friend second. And there may be grief between the new siblings for a while. There was with my step-sisters and brother. They blamed me for them not getting as much as they use to. But they were young at the time too. Good luck either way.

  • Dont discipline them let their father do it,tell them your not replacing their mom and you will do fine.
