5. Never Make Them Feel Less than...

If you are bringing biological children into the mix or have children in the future with your spouse, be sure to love your step-children the same as your “own.” You never want to make your step-child feel like they are less than your biological child, both children are yours and they should feel this way. It will take time to actually share this bond between the two of you, but never favor or give special treatment to one child over the other. Take your step-child out for lunch, just the two of you, and give him/her the same “mommy” and me day that you would give to your biological child.
