As you can probably guess by my user name, I am a stepmother. But...the name was given to me jokingly by my stepson, courtesy of stereotypes such as in Cinderella. A stepmother is a human. As with all humans, there are good, and bad. I thought of my stepson as a bonus when I got married to his father. I had always wanted a child, but was unable to have one. My stepson and I are very close. We are friends. We have a mutual respect for each other. I think it takes effort from both the step-parent and the step-children to make this relationship work.

Of course kids are freaked out by the idea of stepmothers because every fairytale has a wicked step mother in it. I am one myself and I do a far better job with the lids than thier real mother ever did, and yet if there are any issues the finger is always pointed at me. For some reason a stepmother is always treated like an evil home wrecker, while a man who takes on the role of stepfather is a saint. Hardly fair!

I am stepmother and at first I spoiled my step kids, I bought them things all the time and took them to disney and other places, always having fun with them, I thought we were a happy family but then my husband would always act weird at times and won't say anything about his remarks, come to find out my step children were telling lies about me begind my back and would lie about anything to cause a fight with my husband and I. I don't think it's stepmothers most of the time because in my case I was the best step mother until I found out the truth about my step kids then I had my own children and things got crazier, nothing could help their jealousy and my husband had to send them to their mother after our second baby was born. It's the step kids not the stepmother, and that's reality not movies.
