5 Tips for a New Stepmom

October 6, 2017

 

Before meeting my husband, Robert, I never even dated anyone who had kids from a previous relationship. Therefore, when I officially became a stepmom, I was overwhelmed by this new role. Where was the manual? I found myself in so many confusing, frustrating and awkward situations that I didn’t know how to handle which resulted in a lot of anxiety. Luckily, through trial and error (and therapy!) I’ve managed to successfully  carve out a unique role for myself as a stepmom within my blended family.

 

Recently I have been receiving lots of emails from new stepmoms that describe a very similar situation to mine when I first became a stepmom. Of course I want to help a sista out so I came up with 5 concrete tips for the new (or soon to be) stepmom. I’ve found these rules of thumb to be very helpful throughout my journey and I am confident they will be for you too!

 

5 Tips for the New Stepmom:

  1. Don’t forget to put your marriage first

  2. Take the high road with the ex

  3. Be patient when it comes to bonding with your stepkids

  4. Don’t be too hard on yourself

  5. Get a stepmom crew to vent to!
