I have a 3 year old stepson and his biological mother, gets upset because I help my husband provide for him. I love my stepson and we only see him every other weekend. She doesn't want me to attend his birthday parties or buy him anything. She told my husband that only the two of them should provide for him. I really thing that is crazy. I was glad to know my kids had a stepmom that did for them and loved them when I wasn't around. Would you be offended if your child's stepmom was good to them?

I won't because i know that the only thing that matters is that my stepson knows he is loved at our home. I just get frustrated with the attitude she gives me.

no, I would not be offended at all. I think it's lovely that you have embraced your step son and are treating him as you would your own. You are an important part of the little boys life.

Bio mum is probably afraid that you are going to take her place or that her little boy is going to love you more. Your hubby needs to try and help her to see that what you are doing for her son is a good thing and nothing for her to feel threatened by. Good luck.
