Role of a step mom....

I  have known this guy for 10 yrs. We both made mistakes and married other people. He will be divorced in 77 days.

After the divorce is finally him and I are getting together. Him and his ex have 1 child I have 2. 

I can't wait to have 3 boys. My boys and his boy will make a great family. I know the BM will have him more.

I just don't know what my role is. How do I parent him?  Shhh don't tell BM but he will be in my care saturday nights while he works.

Never put your hands on another womans child without her permission........(my bf gave me permission to spank his son i said NO i will put him in time out if he misbehaves he's 2 bf said that was fine)

I'd never spank a child that wasn't mine. I barely even spank my own daughter unless she gets too hard headed.

You're the babysitter, but you're already aware of that. Enjoy.

Just treat him the same way you treat your kids I'd leave discipline up to dh but make a criteria if step son refuses to clean up after playing no dessert or something just in case you have to reprimand him if dh isn't around
