I have been following another thread on here and some of the comments are totally against step parents being called "mom" or "dad".....Why does this bother people so badly?
I have 4 wonderful kids....2 from my husbands previous marriage, 1 from mine and 1 we have together. The only one that doesnt call me mom is the oldest and he is almost 21. He was 13 when we got married and I completely understand. However when he is talking to friends at work or to his GF when he says MOM...he is refering to me! Not all SP are bad and dont you want them to love your child like their own?
Do I believe children should be forced to call a SP this absolutely not, however if they choose to do so why cant they?
