I so agree with this. There is a story which I'll post at the end of this that is going viral around the internet at the moment. Being a step mum myself I have seen the damage a unhappy x can have on her children. Why as a mother would you want your children to be unhappy ? A lot of x's all they do is use there children as weapons against the father who 9 times out of 10 is a good dad they do this for there own selfish reasons, why would you do this to your children who your supposed to love? Why would you let your own bitterness win over the well being of your children ? I'm a step mum and I have seen first hand what a bitter x can do, very sad so I really love it when I read a positive story like the one below.

To all of the mothers out there who throw a fit when another woman treats your child as her own: why isn't that exactly what you want?
I prayed one night for the type of woman my daughter's father would be with, knowing that she would be raised in two homes.
Kayla has been a gift of so much more than I could have hoped for. She started nursing school and Payton has been infatuated ever since. So Kayla ordered a pair of mini scrubs for her to match.
Let me tell you, I'm raising a strong girl, a smart girl and a sweet girl. And I want nothing more than for her to be surrounded with role models who are exactly that. Thank you Kayla for showing Payton how to chase her dreams, how to work hard and stay up late to study for a test. Thank you for still making time to ride her bike with her and make her mac and cheese even in one of the stressful times of your life. You're a true role model and an amazing bonus mom and we are so proud of you!
If you're co-parenting, and seeing your child doing things like this doesn't bring a smile to your face, reconsider what's truly best for your child. Payton has more people to love her this way, and what more could a mother ever want for her child? Being best friends with me AND being best friends with Kayla, is exactly where P deserves to be.
It takes a village, and I happen to love mine.
