I'm raising my step kids and my husband is the only dad my kids know we also have a child together we treat them all the same and love them the same. It's not that hard if you have a heart

Your stepkids will eventually turn on you. Neither your husband nor you will ever have the connection to your stepkids as you do your OWN child.

Yes when their real parents gave them up. They have little to nothing to do with them. I was raised by my step mother and there's nothing that could come between us

I treat my step kids fairly. But they will never be mine. I don't have that bond with them that I do with my kid. I am nice to them. I buy them things but I only see them 4 days a month and a couple weeks in the summer. I can't bond with them like I do my own who I gave birth to and see everyday. They still have their mother and I will always be just a step mom to them and they will always be just a step kid to me. Doesn't mean we don't like or respect each other. We just know that's how it is.

Yes that would be different I would think. Plus my step kids are older - preteen and teens. They think I'm dad's cool new wife but they do not think of me as a mom and I know they never will.

Notice, I put "moma" instead of "mother". I have welcomed this little girl into my life, my home and my heart. It's been over a year since we got custody of her and I am so glad that she is no longer in the situation she was in before. Her "mother" hasn't the capacity to take care of herself, much less, anyone else. So sad that you chose your pills and drugs, lesbians and lowlifes, over being a mother. This baby hasn't had lice, missed a day of school, failed a test or been put in a scary situation since the day we got her. Since Oct. of 2011, this child went from missing 20+ days of school and having to attend summer school to pass Kindergarten, to now, having perfect attendance and being at the top of her class. Before, she was at the doctors office at least once a week, sick because she was dragged around from one nasty house to another, while her mother was messed up on pills. Since Oct. she hasn't been sick at all and now she only goes for check ups. It's been hard, because the baby loves her mother and she doesn't understand everything. I hope one day when she grows up, she realizes and understands the truth. We didn't keep her from her mother, her mother chose to stay in her pill hazed life and now only has supervised visitation. We only want the baby to be safe, happy, healthy and successful and are doing everything we can to ensure that she is. I am so glad that she has the opportunity to grow up in a REAL home, with a family that loves her, protects her and wants nothing but the best for her. She will grow up to be successful, independent and confident. I have a lot of animosity towards the mother. How could you treat your child like that? She was your blood! Your one and only! What is your problem?? Too hard to get up and take her to school? Too hard to help her do 1st grade homework?? Soooo much easier to let her fall behind and make poor grades so you could try to get a disability check on her???? You make me sick and karma is tap dancing all over you. I can't wait to look in the State Gazette and see your picture. They WILL get you for meth and Medicare fraud. It's just a matter of time.
Is this Becky's child? It is sad when you read a random story and know EXACTLY who someone is talking about you. That kid needed a life. Such a sweet baby ;)

I called my mom off on it a few weeks ago and she told me that she would help has much as she could. The confusing part of it is my wife and I have a daughter that my mom does everything for. My step father says nothing about. If I were in a position to help my family financially, I would. They have money to burn but would rather pay the IRS millions instead of giving gifts and using it as a tax write off.. Oh well, I guess I need to hit the lottery :)
thank you for all your opinions, they make me realise that nothing is going to change even though I call he on the carpet about it...
I am sorry to say this but regardless what your parents have you are 43 years old and should support and take care of yourself. What they do with THEIR money is their business. It does sound like your parents are a bit inconsiderate but at 43 you should not be expecting Mommy and Daddy(stepdaddy) to give you a handout for a tax write off...REALLY?

I am very upset over how a step parent I know who treats her step kids awful and her own kids like gold. She blames everything that happens on them,allows her son to slap, pinch, and bite her step kids with no consequences, discludes them from family photo sessions because she will make appointments for pictures when her step kids are at their mother's and buys name brand clothes and shoes for her kids and "cheap" clothes and shoes for her step kids. This past Christmas was horrid because she spent all the money on her kids and bought her step kids 2 $20.00 gifts and tried to say she did it because their mom gets support for them and she can buy them Christmas gifts. But the bad thing is she had those kids Christmas eve and let all the kids open presents at the same time so they
had 2 gifts and her kids had several gifts a peice one being an xbox and nintendo ds.I feel bad for these kids and I can't understand for the life of me how their father allows this to happen. I have brought it up to her that she mistreats them and it is noticable and I think she needs to rethink her parenting and she told me to mind my own business because I didn't know what I was talking about. The dad allows this to happen! I am also a step parent and have my own kids and I go out of my way to be fair and equal and good to my step kids and my husband is good to my kids as well. What can you do in a case like this? I also wonder why the mother of the kids don't speak up for them because they are old enough to tell what's going on.
You are right,something is not right.they are being abused in ways that are mental. It is not right to let the kids open their presents the. Same night.why did the father not say something,he does. not seem to care.the real mom is no better, or she? Would make. sure she had them something if the ass wipes didn't.

Update on step parent this thread was started about: Things got worse and the Daddy finally got enough of it when he caome home and had to take his daughter the ER because his step son bit through her eye lid! Yes, bit through it! All because she would not channel the tv to "his" cartoons. He has taken his kids and left and from and what I have been told by him the step mom is getting a child neglect charge for the eye biting incident and an endangerment charge for making the 9 year old ride in the back of a truck while her child was buckled up safely inside. So glad this dad saw the light! Thank God! These children no longer have to be submitted to this woman's cruelty.
AMEN

You are right! They will turn on you! My stepdaughter has turned on me and her dad both. Her mom has been pitting her against us for sometime now because the child has been acting different toward us during visits for the past few months. She spends most of her visit shut up in her room with the door closed and now she is saying she doesn't want to come back. We have done nothing to her and I along with my husband have done without to give to her. This upsets me to no end. But nothing we can do but go on with our lives. We can't make her be a part of this family and at her age ( teenager ) she is gonna do what she wants. She loves her mom and believes her no matter if she is right or wrong. The girl is being brain washed against her father and it is truly sad after all her daddy has done and sacrificed for her. HER LOSS! SHE CHOSE THIS!

Together my man and I have 4 kids. 1 is mine and 3 are his. But we have 4 kids. I love them all as my own and he loves mine as his own. The ones of you who treat the kids differently should just get out of their lives because you should love all the kids the same. When you got with your spouse they had kids so it was a package deal! I love all 4 of my kids. I am Momma to them.

As they get older, they will never see you as "momma". Keep telling yourself that you are one big happy family, and the pain will be that much worse when they finally stab you in the back.

Your step kids will turn on you indeed! I have been nothing but good to mine and the oldest one (teenager) has turned on me and her dad both. The reasons are stupid that she is supposedly mad at us for. Basically, she's mad at us for being poor after paying her mom child support and mad because her dad said her mom was stubborn about things .....how is that a bad thing to say? The woman (her mom) is stubborn and I am sure she has said a lot worse about my husband but oh well. My step kid is going to side with her mother regardless so it's a losing battle. It is what it is. I will continue to be a good step parent but I will not kiss her azz because she wants to act like a spoiled bratt. So yeah, she will come visit about once of 3 months I guess to "punish" us in her mind but if she doesn't want to spend time with her other siblings then it's her loss. We will enjoy the weekend visits with the kids who want to be here and do not put "conditions" on their visits. Yes, you heard right, when she does come it's "I'll come visit if you let me do so-in-so"
