I was talking with another mom who has a blended family, and she was telling me how her teen daughter was mad at her, claimed that she showed favoritism towards the younger stepdaughter. Some of the complaints were not making her do as many chores as she had at that age, letting her talk back and acting bratty, and always taking her side in a conflict. While my friend chalked some of it up to teenage drama, it also made her stop and analyze her own behavior. We had an interesting discussion on whether she's over-compensating in trying to be a nice stepmom.
How do you handle these types of complaints from your kids?
