Thankful for our excellent Moderators
I just want to say I am extra thankful for our excellent moderators. I was briefly on another site that is supposed to be a safe place for stepmom support. It wasn't. Some chick named "Anonymous" commented on my comment in a very attacking, negative way. She sounded like a HCBM, too. She was saying that we have to show "respect" to our stepkids, which means we can't discipline them at all, lest we hurt their feelings.
I disagreed, and then the mod got involved, also using "Anonymous" as her handle. I googled her and she has one photo on her FB, which is of her newborn baby. I kind of wonder if either of them are stepmoms at all. Well, I noped outta there. This is why this site is so important for stepmoms. We actually get support! HCBM's are not allowed here, and we all stand behind our comments.
So thank you, mods, for being so cool. Mother's day is a hard time for us stepmoms and no one really cares how we feel in the real world, so I am glad I can share here.
