I was always under the impression that when one becomes a step-mother, they shouldn't treat the child any different than they would their own. I was treated like crap by my step-mom growing up, and I hated how that made me feel. I treat and love my step-daughter (I don't usually refer to her as my step-daughter, but as my dd) no different than my dd that I gave birth to. Her bio-mom is only in the picture 4 weeks a year and until my dh comes back, every other weekend. My dsd calls me mommy by her own choice, and it understandably bothers her bio-mom. I just don't know any other way to treat her. I would think she'd be happy to know that someone loves and takes care of her dd, but that isn't the case. Is it possible to love a child too much? I'm at a loss here.Answer Question

I would love it if you were my children's stepmother! That's exactly how I think you should treat a child.
