I have read a lot of stepfamily and custody books over the years, trying to find some bit of help for a situation filled with conflict and hate. I came across a book that not only had useful information in it, but made me laugh out loud many times. It stayed on my nightstand for quite a while as a reminder and for a laugh.
I am mom to four children and stepmom to two through 18 years of marriage so far (and counting), who has angrily watched the manipulation of children thru the years that should bring shame to any adult doing so. What is done by one parent to hurt the other parent hurts the children most. This blog is my emotional venting place through blended family chaos. If you don't like honest emotions in a longstanding, difficult situation, you might not like my blog. I'd go find a blog where they have pretty unicorns flying over rainbows if I were you then.
I have a series of posts and comments from people in step situations, concerning things they hate about it, whether it be about the ex, the law, whatever. If you'd like to add to it, feel free to comment below one of the posts or email me and I will make a new post when I have several new ones to add. You can remain anonymous in the new post or not. It's up to you!
