Hi, I'm Tiffany. I have an 8 y.o.SS and 2 birth daughters under the age of 2. DH & I have been together for 5 yrs and married for just over 3 yrs. I'm hoping to read some comments and articles that will help our situation. My SS is by turns resentful of our marriage then glad to call me Mom. I don't press the issue of names, I'm sure he'll find a name for me that won't usurp his Mom's position. I need help with the rollercoaster in the meantime! Thanks! :-)

Hey all.  =)

I'm Dana, I'm 35, and I have a DS14 and a DS9.  I've been married to my DH for 2 years, and he has my SD6.  (I hope I got the abbreviations right, I tried to read up a little bit before posting)

I woud love to be a part of a group/forum where I can learn from others about how to be a better step-parent.  I struggle with resentment and frustration which I feel really guilty about - but have no control over.  I also have no one else to talk to about this particular issue so I'm hoping to get some support...whether it's someone telling me they know what I'm going through, or telling me I need to suck it up and deal.  =)

Hope to get to know you all better.
Dana

Hi Brandy! We have almost the same family dynamics. :-) I am a CSM of 2 and have 4 BKs. BM is not involved much at all. I've been raising mine for 10 years.

Quoting BrandyAprill:

Hi I am Brandy, mother of 6 kiddos! I am the BM of 4 of my kiddos and have all 6 full time all the time!! I dont like the term step mother because I feel  I am the mother. I have raised my DH & his EW 2 kiddos for 6 years now. She has not been in the picture much but has currently been getting herself together due to legal problems . My kiddos Bio father is not in the pic. I am the one who does all the motherly things for the kiddos! The other woman never gets involved. I feel sorry for her because she will regret it in the future. All the children call me mom as I am their mother. As I said I do not like the word step mom especially due to my situation. My children are 15, 13, 9, 8 ,7and 3. We have a 1 child biologically together. So HI!!!

Hi Erlinda, welcome!

Quoting momcat437:

 Hi, my name is Erlinda--I'm way over forty : ) and have a 24 y/o developmentally disabled stepdaughter who has lived with us since she was 15.  Her mom lives in California and even though she's thousands of miles away (we're in Ohio), she still reaches out occasionally and wreaks havoc.  My sd is not the easiest person to live with but I'm trying to be nice.  It's not working well.  Anyway, I hope I can add a nugget or two of wisdom from my twenty-some years of experience!

Hi Tedra!

Quoting tcsteeves:

Hello, my name is Tedra.  I have been married since 2009 to my wonderful husband.  With that wonderful husband came my 12 year old step daughter, Sydney.  I also have a 3 year old daugher named Abby and a 9 month old boy named Dylan.  Unfortunately, my step daughter has made these last few years very stressful and uncomfortable for me.  Her father got custody of her a few years ago and since she doesn't want to live with us, she has made it very clear by being very disrespectful to me and blaming me for every negative feeling she has.  My husband feels trapped in the middle and sometimes I feel like I don't have his 100% support regarding matters pertaining to Sydney.  I need to talk to other moms who feel the same way and maybe can even offer me suggestions or advice on what I can do.  Sydney's biological mom talks to her every once in awhile on the phone, but she's really not involved in her life.  Any visitation has to be supervised.  I think just talking to other step moms will really help.
