would you acknowledge SM on mother's day?

Just curious. If you're ex was an eowe parent and this weekend was his weekend, would you acknowledge his wife in mother's day if she didn't have bio kids of her own?

The reason I ask is because I have a friend in this situation. The SM in this case hasn't been around that long, married in December. She threw a tantrum at the time she married over the step kids not getting her a Christmas gift. Now my friend is worried that a fight will ensue if she's not given a mother's day gift.

Thoughts?

 No. Dad can take the child and buy a gift for SM.

Well, in most court orders, Bio Moms get kids on Mother's Day just as Bio Dads get the kids on Father's Day. Does not matter whose weekend it falls on. 

No, I would not give a gift nor would I expect a gift. She is crazy.

I think that it should be left up to the kids if they are old enough but if they are young then yes, a gift should be given. I also think that their dad should be the one taking care of it.

No, since she isn't MY mother, there is no need for me to recognize her.  The only person that I recognize on mother's day is my own mother.  The child can recognize his own mother.

It's not up to you to arrange the gift, but yes I think the children should get her something assuming she actually acts like a SM and not one of those women that can't stand the children and do nothing with them.

No.  Not unless she had been around for a while, my kids loved her, and I deemed her worthy of recognition.

Wouldn't it be dads responsibility to have his kids get step mom a gift or card?

She has no kids?
In that case the SKs do t have to acknowledge her on Mother's Day

Not even if she was a mother. That's up to the SO if he wants to buy her a gift from his kids.
But not if she isn't a mother with her own kids

She needs to GTFU
