I am new to this group and new to the site itself. I have a daughter and a step son. Having a tough time adjusting to the way things need to be with shared custody and the ex. I've know him since he was born, second in line to hold him after his mom but theres a distance there between him and I. Any one else have this problem with their step kids? I want to be the best mom I can be to both my kids. Also my husband seems to be harder on my daughter then my step son. Is this common to the situation as well?
