One topic I have failed to cover in the 5 years I have been writing Wednesday Wisdom Tips is being a step-mom.
I wish I had before today. With so many of us moms in the place of being step-moms, help is sure to be needed! I guess since I have never been one, I knew I didn’t have an expertise to share from.
That is until I came across this article from my friend, Kathi Lipp. I have had the privilege of speaking with Kathi at Hearts at Home…and she is an amazing woman. Here’s from my friend. (and I’ll be giving away a copy of Kathi’s book, “but I’m not the Wicked StepMother: Secrets of Successful Blended Families at the bottom of this post.)
Start with Respect
“I thought it would be easy: I would be nice, and my stepkids would like me. I would make their favorite meals and agonize over their Christmas gifts.
I did nice.
It didn’t work.
The problem? The harder I tried, the more I was ignored. Then I went to my stepson Jeremy’s hockey game in my true stepmom-of-the-year form, and cheered him on. When I shouted, “Great game!” he completely ignored me.
I cried and sulked. Then I asked a friend for advice.
To enter to win today, share who you would like to share this book with or if you’re in a hurry just say, “I’m in!” I will announce the winner this Friday!
