Let me be clear. “Not my kid, not my problem” is not my motto.
I understand how some stepparents get so angry, bitter, and resigned that they’re tempted to back away completely from their stepchildren. I feel great compassion for them – and their stepchildren. They all deserve to find balance and peace, and my hope is that this blog will help stepparents step back and breathe and let go – so they can find that balance.
