You say you're confused about it, imagine how confused the children are. And now you're helping to cofuse them. Never lie to your child. Tell them the truth and raise them with the truth. Keeps them from more confused latter. And there is nothing imbarresing about it. If you didn't want the public to know you had step children, you shouldn't have married into it.A child only has one mom and one dad. No matter how good a parent they are, that's all a child gets. God bless the people who step into the roll of Parent, but it don't make them the parent.
