Home Replacements

I don't care WHO you are, famous or not. NEVER, EVER, EVER refer to someone else's kids as your kids. NEVER, EVER, EVER use the kids as ammo, trophies, objects to be displayed, things that can get tossed back and forth. NEVER, EVER, EVER act like your homewrecking, man-stealing ways are justifiable cause to steal away the kids too. NEVER, EVER, EVER act like just because you are the additional parent, that it means the other parents no longer matter. No matter what good or bad happens in the biological family, the biology is what makes the kids exist in the first place.

I know a girl whose stepdad lost his temper with her and compared himself to her dad to her face. He assumed his money spent on her should've bought his love. She told him "My love is not for sale." To the question he asked her "Well, what does your dad do for you?", she responded "He MADE me." That girl is me. I am 35 years old.

Stepparents need to know their boundaries and they need to know when it's okay to cross them and when it's okay not to cross them. My parents are not perfect, but I refuse to sit back and let others try to be their replacements instead of additions. There's a huge difference between replacement parents and additional parents. Adoptive parents are replacement parents. Stepparents are additional parents.
