You can’t be expected to love your Step Kids right away, you might not even like them!
The only things I love immediately, unequivocally, and at first sight, are double gin & tonics and puppies! View Post

Whoever said money can’t buy love, was talking absolute shite.
I openly admit to having spoiled them at times, particularly in the early days. I was trying far too hard with the big stuff, when the focus should've been on the small stuff View Post

You are not their Mother
Essentially, step kids do not want you to act like their Mother, or a Friend or an Aunt. They don’t want you to ACT like anyone! View Post
