A Big Hug!

with Ron Deal | November 7, 2019

Not all stepparents feel like their job is tough, but clearly, on the whole, if you listen to stepparents you'll see they have many challenges and they also have fewer rewards. Biological parents have challenges, too, but on a regular basis they also enjoy sweet, positive moments with their kids: a sincere "thank you" or a teachable moment that brings them together. Stepparents enjoy these kinds of moments, too, but far less often. And, that's why stepparents need a really big hug.
