The Disengaged Stepparent
About the Guest
I think foster parents and stepparents are heroes because they sacrificially chose to love, provide for, and raise a child not their own, sometimes in difficult circumstances. That's why it pains me when I hear about a stepparent who is M.I.A. It's rare, but some refuse to help pay for college, spend one-on-one time with the kids, or to even emotionally engage at all. Hey, when you married the parent you married the package. Don't miss this great opportunity. Bring the gift of you to a child.
Ron, he has nothing to do with them. He has completely shut down toward my kids.
