yourself BEFORE you enter into a committed stepfamily relationship?
I know many of you are already stepmoms. But I would like to know, what should you have asked yourself BEFORE becoming involved that might have made your life a little easier?
Or if you are someone thinking of becoming a stepmom, what is it that you are asking yourself?
-What do you (my partner) expect from me in terms of taking care of the children?
-Should I be responsible for driving my stepkids to their after-school activities?
-Should I be expected to pay to my stepchildren's dental bills, college fund, marriage?
-Should I be expected to entertain the biomom in my home?
I will compile these questions into a list to make it easier to read. Remember, someone might be wondering what do I ask myself and find this very helpful.
