Love and Happiness It does take a little time for the kids to gain your trust as a step parent, but if you treat the kids with respect, they WILL eventually fall in love with you. If you are loved by many more, you will be much happier.
You will also fall in love with the kids because of all the time you spend with them, and all the energy you put into being a great step parent.
