Question:What's the best way to make friends?

Should you plan all sorts of outings and things to do together or wait for them to make the first move? Or, does it depend on the children themselves?

How have you been able to forge a healthy relationship for your stepchildren?

Answer:

My name is Jessica Luis, and I base in USA...My life is back!!! After 1 years of Broken marriage, my husband left me with two kids . I felt like my life was about to end i almost committed suicide, i was emotionally down for a very long time. Thanks to a spell caster called Dr Mohammed, which i met online. On one faithful day, as I was browsing through the internet,I came across allot of testimonies about this particular spell caster. Some people testified that he brought their Ex lover back, some testified that he restores womb,cure cancer,and other sickness, some testified that he can cast a spell to stop divorce and so on. i also come across one particular testimony,it was about a woman called Sonia,she testified about how he brought back her Ex lover in less than 2 days, and at the end of her testimony she dropped Dr Mohammed's e-mail address. After reading all these,I decided to give it a try. I contacted him via email and explained my problem to him. In just 48hours, my husband came back to me. We solved our issues, and we are even happier than before Dr Mohammed, is really a gifted man and i will not stop publishing him because he is a wonderful man... If you have a problem and you are looking for a real and genuine spell caster to solve all your problems for you.

Answer:

I think different kids would have different answers for the first part of your question. For me, as I was a stepchild, I would really have responded well to a warm, loving person who reached out to me and left the discipling to my mom or dad. The best thing a stepparent can do is support his/her spouse without taking over the parent role, which can be tricky, I'm sure. I'd say that becoming a loving advocate for the child who still has boundaries is the best of all worlds. My stepmom is definitely that! She's great!
