Allowed to do anything with their step kids??? All these posts I read about kids that shouldn't be with their step parent but should be with their bio parent. Doesn't make sense to me. Every other post someone brings up, "why wasn't child with BM or BF" is the step parent just supposed to stay in the background? My kids have a great relationship with their SD and their SM. why wouldn't bio parents want that for their kids? Is it so wrong that my dh takes my boys to do guy stuff like fishing, hunting, and sports? Or is it bad that they do stuff with their SM? Yeah their Dad may not do as much with them as I would like, but I would never complain if they hung out with SM. They love her and love being able to spend time with their little brothers.
I'm sure this will open a can of worms, but I am honestly curious as to the reasoning behind all the opinions that a SParent is just the bioparents spouse and nothing more. Please explain.
