This group is for any step parent who wishes to be a positive example for their stepchild(ren). I've come across so many groups and message boards for stepparents that are just downright depressing. I am a stepparent AND a biomom and I have to deal with my bioson's stepmom and I also have to deal with my stepkids biomom and stepdad, and no, it is not the easiest thing in the world to be, but it is also not all gloom and doom.
This group was created by a Christian, so there will be Christian influenced ideas, articles and conversation pertaining to parenting and step-parenting issues. If you have a problem with that, I would suggest finding an alternative group to particpate in.
If you are a stepparent who wants positive advice and feedback, who is looking for ways to improve family relationships, and you are tired of reading the other stepparenting boards, this group is for you. Venting is welcome, but be prepared for positive feedback. Ganging up on the bioparent doesn't solve anything. We need to come up with workable solutions to make our lives easier.
