How To Be A Good Step-parent
|Relationships : Family|
It can be hard to get the balance, between the wishes of your partner in how to bring up their children, and your desire to be accepted. Here are some bullet point tips:
- avoid points scoring
- don't buy toys just to gain favour
- allow your partner time to be alone with their children
The key to success is TIME. If you give time to the step-children, then they will appreciate this more than anything else. Buying presents but not being there will not work. Kids love attention more than anything, so if you give it to them unconditionally then they cannot help but fall in love with you, just like your partner!
