  • I don't get along with my children's step mom at all either but the kid's aren't the reason . it's other reason's I'm also a step mom and well my sweet little SD's bio mom is a horrible mother. when she used to be around we talked just fine but she has issue's and well we haven't talked in a while.

  • The reason we dont has nothing to do with my kids either...we have never gotten along ever since we were in high school together. It just seems to have intensified since...

  • Not at all. She is simply jealous and I don't see why!! He is a deadbeat!! She lost custody of her daughter and wanted to tell me how to parent mine!! I have had alot of problems with her. We have decided to have no contact. It's best for everyone.

  • Never had to deal with one, and I have been so very fortunate that way, I don't envy you gals when I hear such horror stories. I always feel so bad for the kids if it carries over to them.

  • I love my son's stepmother, she was a great stepmom to my son and I appreciate her for all she did for him. My son is now 23 and I will still give her a call every now and then to see how she is and we are on each other's FB..I like her better than my exhusband!

  • I tried in the beginning. I mean I REALLY tried. It just got to be too much for me so now we kinda have this no contact policy. I would love for there to be a day that we could all get along especially now that are kids are becoming more active in sports.

  • Sorry that you don't. I am not being mean, but my step childrens mother died. I feel sorry for them. She died when they were young.

  • Well my kids have a stepmom and we get along great. However my dh and i are also raising his kids from a previous marriage and she is a little salty that she lost the kids, but other than that we get along good as long as everything is going smoothly. In other words when she is not stirring up un-needed drama lol

  • I think it's more about being civil for the kids sake than getting along. We will never be "friends".
