Hey, stepmom! Today, we have a special guest, my friend Beth McDonough of The Inclusive Stepmom! We discuss a tendency for some stepmoms to “stepsmother” their stepkids and what you should do instead! We also chat about feeling jealous of your stepkids, the shame you may experience around those feelings, and what we can do to resolve it!
Beth is a Certified Stepparent Coach, Co-CEO of Stepfamily Magazine, Co-Founder of The Stepmom Summit, and owner of The Inclusive Stepmom, where she takes stepmoms from hopeless to happy.
Beth specializes in LGBTQ+ issues, resentment, being a childless stepmom, infertility, dealing with the ex in a small town, and strengthening stepfamilies through focusing on your relationship with your partner.
The Inclusive Stepmom blog was named one of the best stepmom blogs of 2020 by Healthline. Her work has been featured in Good Morning America, NPR, Stepfamily Magazine, Stepmom Magazine, SheKnows Parenting, Bustle, Romper, TravelZoo, BabyCenter, Stepmomming, and ParentMap.
