Why are step mums hated on so much? If there is a step dad, who is fully involved, does everything a biological dad would and should do, he’s a champ, good on him for loving some one else’s kids, he deserves a medal, but if its a step mum who does all the same, she’s ladled an interfering negative person in the children’s loves trying to take over mums role in the kids lives. I’m a step mum, and from those close to me, yes, I’m awesome. Honestly i don’t need that to lift me up, but to those outside the circle, I’m just trying to take over, I’m a trouble maker, if I’m worried about the kids welfare, I’m just trying to cause issues. This is the part that brings me down. As a step mum, I’m automatically ladled a bitch, iv even been labled a home wrecker even though I met my partner well after separation. I don’t understand the mentality. And to be honest, I get most of this judgement off woman.! Are woman so bitter and use their own experiences they can’t look at the bigger picture that not all step mums are evil cows out to take over the motherly role. Are their kids step mums really as bad as theu make out..? Does jealousy really go so far that accepting that the kids have an e tra person to love them is far more important then a hurt ego?
