HI, I'm new to the group. I'm joining because I am the step mom of two teenage girls. Having your own girls can be a challenge from what I've heard but having 2 step daughters in their teens has proven to be be very stressful! It doesn't help that their mom is the typical "drama queen" and is never home with her girls when they are there. Their mom constantly tries to make the girls not like me and not respect me and it has just really become an exhausting struggle every day. Anything I do, good, bad, or other gets slammed in my face.
I'm joining this group to help try to find ways to deal with this and also to find others that are in my situation so that life can feel just a little bit normal and that I'm not the only one.
Thanks for the support!
