How would you react/feel if your biological child started calling another man or woman, Dad or Mom. A step parent?
Hypothetical situation: Both biological parents are involved in their biological child's life. One or both are remarried or in a blended family. The child is not coersed in any way. Decides on their own they wish to refer to their step-parent as mom or dad.
If you were the biological mother how would you feel/react if you found out your child was referring to their father's wife as 'Mom'.
If you were the biological mother how would you feel/react to your child calling your new husband (biological father is still involved) Dad.
If you were the step parent how would you feel/react to your step-child calling you Mom.
