These Stepparents Want You To Know What It's Really Like In Blended Families

2. I Wish My Husband Would Have Been His Son’s Disciplinarian
"My husband was always very careful to handle any and all dealings with my stepson's mom, and this not only made married life easier, it made being a stepmom easier. If I had it to do again, I would ask my husband to be the more visible disciplinarian for the first few years.
