Ritchie/Peralta Parent/Children

As a parent I know how hard it is to deal with teenagers but as a step-parent I have found it to be even harder and talking to other step-parents I realize it isn't only me. Step-parent/step-child relationship can be very difficult from both sides.

I have found that it is hard on step-parents and step-children. I am a parent and step-parent, my husband is a parent and step-parent. This at times causes tention in our relationship and our relationship with the children. You find yourself blaming the children for your arguments and resenting them. The children resent you for the time the other parent spends with you. In situations where the ex-spouse is still involved this only adds to the stress and tention of the situation.
Anyone in situation knows where I am coming from without any further explanation.
I pray daily for God's guidance in this situation and feel that the prayer of others who know the dificulties involved would comfort.
Please join me and pray for the families who are not only dealing with the day to day stress of raising children in our society but in raising step-children in our society.
