Mom Confession: I Don't Love My Step-Kids as Much as My Own

It's time for a Mom Confession -- because, let's face it, we're real mothers and sometimes it doesn't work the way the parenting books say it should.

This Week's Confession

"I got remarried a few years ago and I live with my husband and his two kids from a previous marriage, ages 6 and 4, plus our 2-year-old twin girls. My husband's kids are great, but I just don't feel the same way about them as I do the kids we had together. I try very hard to treat them all equally and I tell them all how much I love them, but inside I just don't feel as strongly about my step-kids. It would crush my husband if he knew." -- anonymous


Is it normal to love your "own" kids more than your step-kids?
