There’s a few of us stepmoms on here and occsionally band together! I’ve found better resources on step parent specific sites because the challenges in step-life are really hard for people who haven’t or don’t live it to fully understand.

 

That said, I’d LOVE if more step parents weighed in here on these boards and we could have a more active community because there’s a lot of us out here, but just not a ton of resources!

 

ETA:  started this poll a while back, and there was a decent response rate of fellow step moms and their stories!

@ fromatoz   No suggestions, unfortunately. But I am a step-mom too. And it’s the hardest thing I’ve ever done. Crazy.

@ fromatoz   I agree! It would be nice if WB had a more robust step-parent section.

@ Miss-Mauverick   I know! I know there are people out there, but there’s no centralized place here for step parents! Maybe we could push for a subcategory under the parenting section haha. And ITA, step parenting is the hardest thing I have ever done– I wish there were better resources in the chat community for it because every situation is so unique, sometimes a book or article doesn’t really address a specific issue

R/stepparents on Reddit! There’s some decent ones on Facebook, too, but obviously they aren’t anonymous.

crazychickenlady :  I’d love a stepparenting board! Be wary of the ones on Facebook. I was in one over the summer and there was a troll who started sharing our posts with our husbands. It was really terrible. I left all of those groups and have yet to want to share again.

Good luck!
