  • I agree that Stepmoms should have their own category. More than 50% of families today are nuclear families that include a Stepmom. I am a Stepmom and I would love a little more organization on this website. A Stepmom category would show us stepmoms that Cafemom accepts us, especially since Walt Disney pretty much ruined our lives!!! LOLOL

  • Because a stepmom is a mom and can just post under any other parenting categories. I am a stepmom and if there was a category for that I wouldn't use it.

  • Because any questions step moms have probably fit into the same categories as the ones birth moms ask. Ex. health, general parenting, etc.

  • That's a good question...I'm a stepmother even though she doesnt come over often but I think that there SHOULD be a section for stepmoms

  • I know what you're saying, but I still think they have to keep the categories pretty general just to keep from cluttering up Answers. Can you imagine if every category had to then be broken down into specific sub-categories? Like Religion and Beliefs would have to have a separate category for every different religion, or non-religion. Entertainment would have to be separated into Music, Movies, etc.

  • I would have to agree. I'm also a Stepmom and am only on Cafemom for the Step parenting. I don't have any kids of my own. I would have no other groups to go into or any other areas to look at. So a Stepmom Category would be great for someone like me. I wouldn't have to go searching through everything else just to find something to do with Step Parenting items.
