What are some of the things or actions that would give the stepmother the evil title for you?

I think people in general are way to hard on stepmoms.

Women are generally harder on women, no matter the subject matter. You have BMs with the worst Ex on earth but someone she finds reasons to make the SM the monster, not remembering she found the same guy charming at one time.

Not to steal your post but if a man marries a woman with a kid and simply works and comes home to read the newspaper he is a hero.

If a SM doesn't kiss BM ass, kiss DH ass, kiss SC ass and the in laws a and BM families ass then she is a witch. If she doesn't take care of SC for DH. Mind her business when BM is trying to start shit she is a witch.

I have friends who are BM who ate very critical of me and I let them all have it

Thinking and telling anyone that would listen that they (as pretty much 0% NCPs) could raise the child better than the CP.

Stalkerish/harrassing behavior.

The people we know in real life are very critical of BM, primarily DH's family, since they are also not allowed a relationship with SS.

This:

And adding to the resenting part: saying things to the child to hurt their self esteem. Such as - I don't like your hair color: DIRTY blonde is so .. Dirty looking.
Or .. If you could lose some weight, you would be so pretty.

Why would you be friends with people who are so critical of you and your situation. Everyone's situation is different.

I personally don't expect anyone to kiss anyone's ass. I simply would like harmony and for everyone to just keep their mouths closed and opinions to themselves.
