Okay. so in this instance i am speaking of the custodial parents wife or husband. When Dad (for example) is at work and child gets in big trouble at school and stepmom has to pick the child up, shouldn't she have the right and the responsibility to tell the child to spend the rest of his/her day in the bedroom?
Or Mom is cooking dinner, stepdad takes kids to the park. Who's in charge? I mean, if something happens shouldn't the kids listen to the stepdad, including discipline?
Please keep in mind i'm talking about custodial parents. Parents who have full legal and physical custody and are married.
And i'm asking this question because i see so many woman saying that stepparents don't have the right to discipline their stepchildren. and i am NOT saying that ALL stepparents should have that right. I'm only speaking of those who are married to custodial parents.

I think that if you married someone when you have kids you should expect your kids to listen to that person. Even if you are just in a long term relationship. I have expected my oldest son to listen to my boyfriend from the time he moved in. That was 3 years ago.
