In this episode of the Nacho Kids Podcast, Lori, co-founder of Nacho Kids, interviews stepmom Jennifer. Jennifer has been with her significant other for six years and married for three and a half years. She has two stepkids and one “ours” kid. Jennifer wasn’t around the stepkids a lot prior to the marriage and believes if she would have spent a lot more time with the stepkids prior to marriage, she may not have gotten married. With each life event in Jennifer and her husband’s life, the high conflict bio mom was triggered to start something. This seems to be a very common occurrence in blended families.
In this episode, we discuss:
Kids from high conflict divorces Being a positive and happy place for the stepkids Telling the stepkids “I’m not your mom” The family court system Psychological strain from court battles Dealing with a very high conflict bio mom
