Moms Roundtable coffee cup


In this Moms Roundtable, myself and fellow parenting coaches Claire Grant and Mary Moore discuss how to get a child to respect their stepparent. Having grown up with a stepfather myself, I can understand the struggles that go along with mom bringing someone new into the family.

Among the three of us, we have raised ten children and helped thousands of parents of teens in our professional lives as members of the Family Education department at Hyde School. We can assure you there is probably no scenario for which we have not had previous experience.

Is our advice helpful? Do you struggle with this issue and have had success in solving it? Let us know in the comment section below.
