Welcome to The Sparkling Stepmom! The goal here is to empower, enlighten, and inspire other stepmoms. I am not here to judge or to give unwanted advice. This blog and website works together with an online support group on Facebook called “Sparkling Stepmoms”. You can get there by clicking here, simply request to join and shortly after I will approve you and add you to the group. The way these two aspects work together is quite simple. You talk to other stepmoms, gain insight, make friends, ask questions, make jokes…whatever you want to do and I respond to you there and write about the groups “Hot Topics” here on the site in our blog. You can also send me things that you would like for me to put on this website/blog, you can do this anonymously or not, that is up to you. Please feel free to contact me through this site or email me at sparklingstepmom@yahoo.com. Please hit the “Subscribe” button to the right and enter your email address (if you are not already a member of WordPress) so that you never miss a post!

The Stepmom’s Bill of Rights

1. Our marriage is our first priority, and we will address all issues together.

2. I will be a part of the decision making process in my marriage and family at all times.

3. People outside the immediate family, including ex-wives, in-laws, or children cannot make plans that affect my life without my consent.

4. I will not be responsible for the welfare of children for whom I can set no limits.

5. I must be consulted about which children will live with us, when they can visit, and how long they will stay.

6. I will not solely be responsible for housework – chores will be distributed fairly.

7. Others may not violate my private space at home, nor take or use my possessions without my permission.

8. I will never be treated as an “outsider” in my own home.

9. My husband and stepchildren must treat me with respect.

10. I will be consulted on all family financial matters.
