Being with a man who has children: relationship with step children
Your step children are not people you should be confiding in
. Don't mistake them for your best friends, and don't tell them about the negative aspects of your life with their dad.
Don't complain about him, instead let them see that you're a close, contented couple and that since he's been with you, their dad is the happiest man on the planet .. after all, a happy dad equals happy step children.
Expert's advice: "Some step moms will be exes or mothers themselves so why not take a minute to think about the different roles you have in your life. And be prepared to meet your partner or the mother of your step children halfway."
