If mom and dad get along, is there really any good reason why SM and mom NEED to get along? Now, I'm not saying they need to fight and bicker, but what about just civility? Hi, how's the weather, type things, if that? Does it really hurt anything if mom doesn't talk to sm about her kids, visitation, etc? If so, what does it hurt?
