So I believe that some of you are step moms, some of you have children who have step moms (or dads if you have remarried), and some of you have no experience with the situation. So I think it will be very interesting to see what each of the three different groups takes this one. I do think it would be helpful if everyone states which one of the three they are.
Do you think that step children and biological children ever truly receive 100% the same things/treatment from parents (in terms of anything you can think of: gifts, attention, criticism, support...whatever)? Some families blend seamlessly, others have it rough the entire time, do you think this affects any of the above?
