Stepmom Central Stepmom Central

For the new stepmoms and the not-so-new that are sincerely seeking help

Posted by   + Show Post

Be careful.  Take "advice" with a grain of salt.  Listen to the ladies that are kind and offer constructive solutions.  I have seen countless women ripped to shreds in here by a group of angry bio mothers.  Women come here seeking help...some are at wits end...and they get greeted with hostility, anger and judgment.

It makes me sad to know that someone hitting rock bottom in step hell comes to a "support site" and instead of support they get devoured.

Not all groups are like this..some are kind and helpful.   

Good luck to you!

So then what is the agenda of this post? If, by a wide margin, the demographic you are reaching is failing to understand the message, perhaps additional clarity is required.

Quoting FroYoBitch: I do. Thanks.

Quoting LyndaLoo78: Why not just PM them directly?

Quoting FroYoBitch:

Y'all are missing the point and that's OK.  A mom or two will read this and feel better.  That was my goal.

/done.

Amanda is actually one of the nicer ones

Quoting FroYoBitch:

 Exhibit A...


Quoting amanda_mom89: I think you'd be surprised to find out that most of the women in here are SMs. Not BM's. And yes, some women in here are bitches from time to time. But most of the time I see someone whining it's because they got a strong dose of reality and truth and they didn't like it. This group is not everyone's cup of tea. But if have thick skin and an open mind, it's chock full of great advice and supportive women. The women who have been successful in their step lives have overcome a lot and they didn't get there by crying that someone was mean. You have to be tough, flexible and willing to step outside your comfort zone. And that's why their advice comes like it does. I don't know where I'd be without this group. I don't always agree with everyone and sometimes a post doesn't go the way I want it to.. But this is a good group.

what hostility?

Quoting FroYoBitch:

 As I expected..a lack of introspection elicits hostility when the curtain is pulled back.

I get your point, but you lose credibility when you pick Amanda's post as your exhibit A.

Quoting FroYoBitch:

My message is for those wondering "WTF just happened" when they come here for support (as the Group Guidelines state) and find hostility and venom from members with serious baggage and issues of their own to work through.

If the shoe doesn't fit then no need to get defensive, right?   

I anticipate a lot of venom by those that will never see themselves fitting the profile.  That's OK...if a few ladies find some comfort knowing that it's NOT them..my post was worthwhile.
