  • Left out of what? My stepmom isn't left out of anything. In fact, I talk to her way more than I talk to my dad.

  • Sometimes the children think that the stepmom is trying to take their mother's place.

  • Because stepmom is just a title. In reality all you are is a fathers new wife. You are nothing to the child except an obstacle in the family dynamics.

  • I agree with Chrissy, I am a step mom and my son has a step mom. That means I am my step son's dads wife that is it. In our family we have all agreed that the step parent stays out of everything and is only there for support. Makes life much easier that way. I am my step sons friend and that is about it. The only time I would step in is if he was going to hurt someone or something. Good luck, I think step parenting is one of the hardest jobs in the world.
