I've been reading alot on here about step parents.. I'm a step parent too two kids, in addition to having two kids of my own. We are a blended family. I see that alot of people on here feel step parents should have the same rights as bio parents. Why is this? A step parent has no legal right to their step kids. If the marriage fails the step parent most likely won't see the children again unless they have a half sibling.. I guess I'm just asking for clarification? I feel like a child should respect and listent too the step parent and that the step parents need to set a good example for them and treat the children like their own. But ultimately its the bio parents who should take first priority. I am personally on both sides of the coin and because I think the way I do my stepkids mom and I get along great. Thoughts???
