Stepmom Secret
Brenda Ockun, Founder & Publisher

Around here? We talk about all the tricky, taboo topics you can’t discuss with anyone else—like the ex, and child support, and the reasons why you sometimes feel like an outsider in your own home.

If you’ve ever been told that you should love your stepkids like your own, or that you’re just the stepmom, or that you knew what you were signing up for when you started dating someone with kids, you know it’s easier to keep your stepmom status—a secret.

If being a stepmom is harder than you imagined, you’re not alone. We understand that even when things are good, they’re complicated.
And we can help.
