Random thread but I'm curious what everyone's opinion is.
I was reading a magazine article today and It was about LeAnne Rimes and her husband's ex Brandi Glanville (I dont know who she is but whatever lol) anyways Rimes hubby left Brandi for LeAnne and they all co-parent Brandi and Eddie Cibrian's 2 sons together.
Rimes made a statement on Twitter referring to Eddie and his sons as 'my boys' and Brandi got incredibly angry and told her not to refer to her children as 'my boys' and to learn her place as the step-parent.
I'm just wondering what peoples thoughts are? I am not a step-parent and I'm still with the father of my children so I can't speak from a place of experience in that respect.I mean,I'm sure if my ex's new wife (If I had one) referred to my children as 'hers' It would sting me a bit but I also think I would want whoever is in my child's life in a 'parental' role to love my children and want the best for them.
I am a step-child (I've actually had 2 step mothers over the years) and my first one never truly accepted me so I know how hard and hurtful that can be.My second considers me her own even though she's only been my stepmum since I was 17 (I'm 28 now) and she's been there for me more than my own mother so I know how positive having a step-parent who loves you can be.
So what do you think? Is there a 'line' step-parents should never cross or is anyone that loves your children even remotely as much as you do just a bonus?
Sorry if this post offends anyone,I'm just really interested.
