Yes. I was raised by my step-mom and at that time we did not get along. It wasn't until I was in my earlier twenties that I carried an actual decent conversation with her. She how ever is a great mom to my siblings and a great Mimi to my children.
I think I'm about the same as she was.

Definitely. My mom was awful. I would never choose men, alcohol or drugs over my children. I wouldn't leave them with strangers for months on end.
