  • I was not raised that because your not blood that you are not a part of the family... My grandfather was married 3 time (do to deaths of my grandmother and step, with his current still living) He taught us that everyone is welcome into his home and is part of his family, So when I divorce my ex and remarried, he and my family opened there doors to him and his children. My grandfather died 2 yrs ago and to this day my step grandmother is still a large part of me and my grand kids.

    What are we teaching our kids with the changing ways and divorce so common?

    What do we want them to learn by our mistakes

    I want mine to know that I may not be married to there father and he is still a big part of there lives, and that when I remarried opened the door to a step dad, and family... and now they have a new step mother and guess yes I do not like her one bit, but I will never show them that.... There will be many people in our paths we will dislike, how do we want to teach our children to handle someone in the world when we cant ever teach them to be a family...

  • The question was ....Why am I left out of my step-daughters band photo

    the photo was for the parents

    A parent is a mother or father; one who sires or gives birth to

    .....................and/or nurtures and raises an offspring..............

  • Did you ask your step-daughter this question? It was most likely her decision...
