Stepparent: Do’s and Don’ts 2

with Ron Deal | December 12, 2019

Here are some more stepparent do's and don'ts. Do make sure the biological parent has your back. Without that your authority is going to fall flat. And when you have a disagreement, and you will, settle it in private. Don't unilaterally change rules. Get together with the biological parent and make the changes together. And, finally do communicate with the biological parent. In fact, over communicate and if you're uncertain about something talk about it together before giving the kids an answer.
