Great work !
I think every blended family co parenting should listen to this podcast
This is what I NEED to hear!!!! Accountability. Boundaries. Awareness. I’m eating it up
The first stepmom support resource I could relate to.
For years I’ve looked for someone who I could relate to. There are so many stepmoms out there doing a great job, but no one who had the balls to straight up say, my stepkids’ mom has issues. I felt like I was going crazy and felt pretty alone in my experience until I found this podcast. My husband and I are hugely invested in the emotional development of my stepdaughters, and it is a part time job just navigating their mother’s subtle abuses in order to ensure they come up right. I love listening to someone I can relate to and highly recommend this podcast.
