Today I want to talk about the perks of being a Stepmom. Much is said about how demanding and absorbing it can be, but no one talks about the perks of it enough.
Stepmotherhood is and can be a beautiful thing because it allows us to share our love with more children than just our biological children.
For those who don’t have the chance to be a Bio-Mom, it gives them the opportunity to help raise this amazing little human being. Being a stepmom is one of the most rewarding things I have ever done because I feel like I have been a key person in their lives. I have respected the Bio-Mom’s boundaries, but I have also been able to teach them many things, and most of all, give them love and kindness.
You can feel good about your role because you know that this person’s future is not solely in the hands of you and your significant other. ( Yes, this still is true when you have BIO-MAMA Drama, but we will save that as a topic for another day.)
You have to start thinking about all of the adults involved in the kid’s life as part of the team. If unfortunately, straining circumstances don’t let you do that, I am also here to help. But right now, what I want to tell you is that being a stepmom is not a handicap. It is not something that you should feel wary about it.
You have to start thinking about all of the adults involved as part of the team.
Being a stepmom is a wonderful journey, and just like any other journey, it will always have its ups and downs. I would love to hear from all of you which perks of being a stepmom you have found. Comment and share this with other stepmoms that might need it. For those of you who feel you need a bit of help, reach out to me, and we will sort out everything together.
Remember, being a stepmom is something that should be enjoyed, not suffered!
