I'm new to the step parent role and although I'm a mum to two teenage boys being a step mum is completely alien to me. Please help me survive the "you're not my mother" arguments and tantrums.

I saw this one on the same forum..

“Women are angels and when someone breaks our wings we simply continue to fly... on a broomstick. We are flexible like that”

Made me smirk.... ;-)

You probably can't avoid the "you're not" this that whatever! I remember thinking "thank God!" When one of mine said it to me.

I still feel that way. The other two are lovely.
