I am one who believes that step parenting is the hardest role ever. But I also think that a step parent should not be parenting. At least not in most cases. While this is not popular with many stepmoms...it helps create a more positive boundary where everyone knows their role. If I am ever a step parent then I see myself as friend, confidant, and a person to ensure safety. That is about it. My step children would already have parents who can discipline. If they did something while with me I would first ensure their safety, remove myself of them from the situation, and make it known I will speak to their father about the situation. How their father decides to discipline is his business - because it is his child. If he consults his ex wife I would applaud it. If he consulted me I would give some suggestions but not expect him to use them. And he would not discipline my son. I will. Good boundaries = a good marriage.
