Tip #4 Let Hubby Deal With His Ex
After a remarriage, the husband often desires his wife to be the communicator between the two homes. This typically includes tackling the visitation schedule, holidays, school activities, summer vacation, etc.
When there is tension between the two women, it’s advisable for the stepmom to step back and politely inform her husband that he will need to communicate with his ex-spouse. If he refuses, the stepmom needs to learn how to lovingly say no, and set a boundary. This may require coaching sessions, resources, or counseling.
