Hi Ladies! I'm wondering if other stepmom's have noticed that their stepchild/children act differently when their biological parent is around. My stepson is a lot of fun to hang out with when it's just he and I, but when his Dad's around he becomes really whiny and is constantly seeking attention from my husband, in addition to flat out ignoring me. I notice that I react to it as well and shut down, so it makes the situation even worse. I thought I would join Circle of Moms to see if anyone else has experienced this and if they have any suggestions for me. Thanks!!
