Okay, step-parents. Hide that nasty, hairy wart. Put yourself in the kids' shoes. I know this is hard for you, but it's always the hardest on the children. Don't force sides. Don't ask that your spouse align with you against the children or against their former spouse. Do what works and avoid what doesn't. Seek compromise. When possible, get on the same page with the biological parent or former spouse. If possible, blend. If not possible, compromise and work together rather than against each other. Don't try to be super mom or super dad. No one wins and it typically isn't the best for anyone involved. Set clear boundaries and roles. Stick with them. You and your spouse or significant other should know what is expected of you as it relates to the children. Get help. This is challenging. Change is hard. Have a professional available to provide you the tools you will need to navigate when the waters get rough.
