If you have stepchildren do you feel as if they are your own?

Do you treat them differently?

  • I love my stepsons as much as I love my bio-son. I would do anything for them that I could. That being said, I know perfectly well that they're not mine.

  • I have step grandchildren and they are mine just as surely as the other grandchildren. They all get treated the same with us. WELL LOVED!

  • I have a step daughter and I am pregnant with my first child....I don't treat my step daughter any differently than I believe I would my baby....though my bf (her dad) says I will understand when I have my little girl. I believe I treat her no differently than I would my own child though

    If she's the daughter of your boyfriend, she's really not your step-daughter.

  • i treat all babies the kids the same, i wish my SO ex would allow him to see his daughter and have her come for a the summers or something but they are from canada and there is nothing legally we can do.. BUT he treats my daughter the same as he does our son and he is not her father as far as her being a girl goes he dosent really know what to do with her but he buys everything she needs and plays outside with her and stuff.

  • i think it all depends i have a step son from my ex-husband i raised him from 7 mo till he was 5yrs then after me and his father divorced his mother took him away from me when she found out my ex went to jail there was nothing i could do since i had no legal standing that was 7 years ago i love him like he was my own he still sneaks calls to me with help of his aunts i still celebrate his b-day even if his not there to blow out the candles and my eyes tear when i see pics or talk about him i have 2 other step children by my husband now and i feel that same bond is not there i treat them the same as i do my own children but that motherly bond is not there
