What do stepparents need to know about PA?

Stepparents may either be alienators or targeted and erased:

  • As a stepparent, we tend to provide support to our spouse as they parent their children. At times, the stepparent may join in with their spouse to insult or lie about the other parent, or become involved with blocking contact. Example: A mother shared that she has difficulty tolerating her husband’s new wife because when she calls to talk to her children during her ex’s time, she can often hear their stepmom in the background coaching the children about what to say, or the children report that she hides their phones from them so that they cannot communicate with her.
