As a step parent or SO do you feel comfortable or agree that if you have the children you should parent them as well as discipline them? My SO has kids (I live with SO), their mother is never around so I have the kids most of the time (he works 2nd shift). He has no problems with it but family and friends say I should not be the one to parent/discipline his kids.

even if you are the babysitter and not even their step mother you still have the right to discipline them. whoever is taking care of the child has the right to discipline them...... i am sure that your friends and family will agree that a teacher has the right to discipline the child when they're at school, so why do you not have the right to discipline a child in your care in your home? they make no sense.
