why is it that when there is a problem with a stepchild, everyone seems to think that you should talk to the bio mom or dad? When you married your SO, you knew that they had kids, and therefore you should treat them as your own. Blood shouldnt matter. Im not saying that you should take over as their bio parent, im just saying you should love, punish, talk, and treat them as if you were their bio parent.Answer Question

My husband is the step-dad to my 17 year old. He's raised him since my son was 2 1/2 and my husband and I never feel the need to discuss anything with my son's bio-dad. My husband treats my son just like he does his own 2. The bio dad has NO problems at all with my husband making the decisions. He knows my husband will never mistreat him and knows he is a good dad to him. Of course we always include the bio dad but it's not like we feel we have to pick up the phone and call him everytime my 17 year old does something wrong. And you're right- blood shouldn't matter! My husband has been more of a "dad" than the bio dad. Yes, bio dad has always been in the picture but my husband raises him, puts food on his table and clothes on his back- therefore we don't feel we need to explain everything to bio dad.
