Tips

What's Your Stepparenting Style?

Icon_tip_2

It’s important to determine early on what your role as “stepparent” will look like. This will help you define how you fit into the family, and help everyone get comfortable that much quicker.

What do you want your relationship with your stepchild to be? Start by asking yourself this question, and then think about what kind of a stepparent you will be to forge that relationship. The benefit of being a stepparent versus a natural parent is that there is far greater flexibility and freedom in your role. Do you envision yourself being hands-on—attending teacher’s conferences and soccer games? Or, do you want to be more of a supportive friend? If you have children from a previous marriage, how will you avoid playing favorites? Keep your stepchild’s living arrangements in mind when you answer these questions. If your stepchild lives in your home full time, you’ll probably have to be more involved than if they lived with the other parent full time, and vice versa.

Once you have an idea of the type of stepparent you want to be, talk to your spouse about your wishes and see if your ideas match with his or her expectations. Remember to allow for some flexibility. Your role is a work-in-progress that will continue to evolve in the weeks months and years to come.

Topic: Pregnant at 52 after reunion love spell
Testimony:
-My marriage was falling almost dead due to a bit argument, depression, feelingless and numbed attitudes of my Hubby, he preferred being silent so as to hurt me.
-Although there’re days he has been fine and good to me, we cook, eat and do things together, but we still like stepping on a dozen of eggs, we were not at ease as like before when our marriage was still in an excellent shape. Most times after saying some hurtful words to me like; I cannot bear his children anymore cos of my age. He says sorry and apologize cos he knows that he’s acting passive, numbed and feelingless to me and frustration hits him back again and again.
-I truly love my Hubby and feels guilty of our misfortune, I have always wanted to trace back my wrongs and make some amendments so we can live as a happy family with our children by our side. I was tired of seeing him hurt inside.
-He eventually served me with a divorce letter after 18 years of our blessed marriage. His reason was that we could never work things out together again, I couldn’t bear his children, shutting him off to be involved in my life and affairs, he feels numbed when he thinks of those circumstances.
-I was deeply hurt before consulting Dr. Wakina Love Temple, even though I tried day by day to adjust to the woman of his choice but he didn’t see my efforts.
-At the end, I was put in a better position with my Hubby by Dr. Wakina love spell via his email dr.wakinalovetemple@gmail.com. I’m 7 months pregnant already at 52. It’s a magical work of Dr. Wakina that restored our dream.

I have never been a fan of things like this but just decided to try reluctantly cause I was desperate and left with no choice... He did special prayers and used items... Within 2 days he called me and was sorry for all the emotional trauma she had cost me, she moved back to the house and we continue to live happily. what a wonderful miracle Dr.Osauyi did for me and my family. I have introduced him to a lot of couples with problems across the world and they have had good news...

My husband encouraged us to come out of our shell and tell the world about the man behind the medicine that brought us back together after 7 years of separation. He was so astonished by the amazing spell by Dr. Wakina (dr.wakinalovetemple@gmail.com) that reunited our undying love for each other that proved we are sole mate. There has been a barrier between us, we regularly disagrees with each other, argue over unnecessary things and fight almost every week when we were still unmarried. We eventually separated for some months due unsolvable issues before he moved to Italy for 4 years.
Though it might sound impossible to still get hold of your crush for that period of time without any means of communication. I always felt he took my heart away with him because I could not fall in love again and I could not stop thinking about him but I can not be with him. Doc Wakina (dr.wakinalovetemple@gmail.com) proved that nothing relating to love issues is impossible for him; doctor also proved that true love does not die after broking the barriers between us. Days after the spell, he returned unexpectedly to take me along with him. My happiest moment is seeing us live happily for a year without issues before getting married. We are still astonished by the good spiritual work that brought us together forever.

I am in my early 40s and have never had a happy relationships or marriages because of the terrible mistake I made in my youthful age (15 years ago), though I have been married for 3times now. This story is ugly but I must share it to clear my conscience and pave the way for a new beginning in life. I broke two homes; their marriage did not mean anything to me as much as I gets what I want. It was fun until I got married, then karma started. My first husband was a cheating machine with both women and men, the second was nothing to write home about. I visited a therapist immediately the second left, to make sure I do not have broken home again, but the third which I have married for a year and two months took in another girl and demanded I leave his house. I did not see that one coming. To cut it shot; dr. wakina via (dr.wakinalovetemple@gmail.com) showed me mercy by rewriting history with a special love spell. Asked me to first go and plead for forgiveness from the homes I broke before the spell can take effect, it was not an easy task, in fact it was a suicide mission but was success. The spell took effect immediately I forgave myself, something strange began to happen, I saw shadows running off my body that morning, my husband who despised me so much did not only call but came to pick me from work to a romantic dinner. Over a year now, my husband has remained a loving and romantic man. I learnt my lesson. Thank you doctor wakina.

Hello readers,
I USED LOVE SPELL RITUAL TO GET BACK THE MAN I LOVE.
It was unfortunate that his ex gf decided to contact him to get him back the moment we planned to build a family together. I was hurt for seeing him confused and indecisive after I sacrificed time, energy, heart, life, money, soul for him only for him to pay me with heart break by saying that he is now unsure of our relationship. He developed an attitude of becoming cold and distant towards me. I know he loves me very much for the past 4 years and I love him more before his ex tries to steal his heart.
I was advised by a good friend of mine to fight back both physical and spiritual if I truly love him. Her advised encouraged and lead me to posts and site that talks about love spell from Dr. Wakina Link, it was my first attempt but I took the opportunity that came once which Dr. Wakina provided via his email dr.wakinalovetemple@gmail.com. It was said and done by Dr. Wakina, I never knew his ex used evil powers on him. I fought a good fight which I and my lover are very proud of after his freedom and decision to continue with me until we get married, his ex has vanished from his life. I never doubted Dr. Wakina for once, he proved his worth.
Thanks for your time…

My family advised me not to leave my future or that of my child in the hands of a jerk! They do not really know what he means to me. He left me because of family issues, my parents never liked him, they thought he is stingy and too quiet, but they never knew he is richly blessed inside. Though I tried several time to make them accept him before the pregnancy saga which made them go mad and pressured him to force our breakup. We lost contact with each other, he did not see our son when she was delivered. But I kept wishing to be with him again for eternity, I pray every night that my parents forgive him and accept him the way he is.
2yeras passed and I still kept my hope strong, I was referred to Dr. Wakina by a stranger online who benefited from his love spell, her testimony motivated me to contact him for. I was afraid because I have not done such before because I do not want to hurt anybody. I was surprised when Dr. Wakina first told me my problems and status of my baby father. It was quite impressive that I had to share tears of joy with high hope.
Valentine came early the day Dr. Wakina brought back my baby father after 2years of waiting. My family welcomed him with an open arms and apologized for their wrongs, he is now every bodies favorite. I am happy for the brilliant work done by Dr. Wakina, it was almost impossible to bring him back after 2years. I will never forget his reactions the first time he saw our son. Happiness prevailed at last. Doctor Wakina can be reached via dr.wakinalovetemple@gmail.com

Can you please advise if you can help me get back my husband? That was the title of my message to a spiritual spell doctor called dr. wakina via (dr.wakinalovetemple@gmail.com). Please read to the end. Thanks....
I was really struggling to keep my Husband to myself. He works with an NGO and travels a lot to different countries, little do I know he already has another woman in South Africa with four month pregnancy for him. It was very hard for me to believe that my Husband can actually cheat on me, but pregnanting another woman is something else. We have four grown children already.
I was heartbroken when he wrote to say he has relocated permanently to South Africa because of his pregnant lover. I was so damaged, but there was nothing I could do, besides, I can’t even tell my family because they warned me earlier. So, my hope for his change of heart came to life on early hour of November 12 when he wrote again to say he is confused and frustrated and don’t know if it is me or her, before changing his mind again. My eyes suddenly opened and I realized his new lover is doing something evil to keep him there.
I prayed and was guided to consult a spell caster named dr. wakina via (dr.wakinalovetemple@gmail.com) for help. Hopefully the spell doctor helped me as expected and our marital issues were resolved. He returned home to us 7days after the spell. He pleaded and confess all his atrocities. The best part is after the love spell, his new lover confessed he is not responsible for the pregnancy, it was a strategy to tie him down. She finally commanded him to go back to his original family because she couldn’t withstand the power of the spell. Wow, it was mind blowing when the impossibility became possible. Spell really works and dr. wakina is indeed great.

I never take some people for granted, especially those that plays vital role in my life. Dr. Wakina is one of them. Ever since he was recommended to me, he has been playing a significant role in my life by helping me get back my girlfriend after months of breakup and also granting me the opportunity to obtain the position I have been seeking. His spell stood like a pillar in my life when I was seriously depressed and almost give-up every opportunity I had.

My girlfriend really mean a lot to me, I see my future with her before she was deceived by a guy for marriage who latter used and dumped her before her disappearance. I didn’t know all these until Dr. Wakina disclosed series of interesting secrets to me through his email (dr.wakinalovetemple@gmail.com). I did what almost every normal guy can’t do by ignoring friends advises to forget her and move on. I never quit searching for her because I see my future and family in her.

The risk I took was worth it, we’re envied today and made reference to by critics. Once again, thank you Dr. Wakina for the powerful spell done that made me unite once again with my lover, I appreciate the efforts you put in even in your busy schedule to make sure this spell is successful. I appreciate you for opening my eyes for new opportunities around me.

My name is Tammy Paul, I’m finally fulfilling my promise to Dr. Wakina after the unexpected miracle he performed last December by bringing back my Husband as a clean and perfect man I once to know. I called his work unexpected because I didn’t know or believe a Man could have such a talent to restore a damaged home.
After my Husband was restored, I waited to see if he will go back to his old ways, for more than 6 months, I have been observing him, but he never went back, he became so perfect like we never had issues in the past. I also observed if his work will bring bad luck to me or my family, instead, Dr. Wakina spell mad us stronger, wealthier and more united than ever.
I am giving back to the world the opportunity they gave me to meet my destiny changer. The reviews I read on blogs and drwakinalovetemple.webs.com changed my whole life. I have confirmed that Dr. Wakina is real and his love spell is so powerful, his spell last for eternity, he is a good man that knows his work. I promise you won’t regret when you email him via: dr.wakinalovetemple@gmail.com for help.

I wrote an article to Dr. Wakina on how I and my husband had a fight that lead to my loneliness and despair, hoping for help on getting back my husband. The reason we got into fight was not because he always cheat on me with different women, I always forgive him for that because I couldn’t change him. I fought him when I found out he was too extravagate, he wasted our hard earned money on his vices which includes smoking, drinking, clubbing and gambling. As an expecting mother, I couldn’t accept that part of his life and the pain he caused me hence I went hysterical and physically abused him on our anniversary night (May 31st). He was traumatized by the fight which I regretted, I asked for his forgiveness, but he never listed, he traveled out of the country to stay with his friend. I was seriously hurt, my guilty conscience won't let me live without him.
I ask Dr. Wakina in the article to help prove to my husband that I am no longer hysterical, I want him to come back and start life afresh with me. I also pleaded to Dr. Wakina to help me get back his forgiveness and love towards me and our unborn child. I was lucky at the end, my desires were granted, it happened like a miracle after the love spell, I felt the spell on me emotionally and I have changed, my husband come back to me as a changed man too, for months now, he has been truthful to me, Dr. Wakina Softened his heart and made him to accept my love again and what I can offer. We are living in peace since after the spell. Thank you Great Dr. Wakina. Reach out to him via [dr.wakinalovetemple@gmail.com]

Sometime late September last year, I needed help for a bring back love spell after reading great reviews on Dr. Wakina and his love spell. I had a situation which I desperately needed a supernatural help on, every physical efforts made to rescue my husband has always failed. My husband stopped loving and caring for me and our children after 7 years of happy home. He did so much wrong to me, I encountered so many domestic violence from him, he turned into a professional liar, and the worst of all, and he started using drugs and alcohol. I couldn’t bear his torture anymore when he wanted a divorce. I couldn’t afford to lose my husband to a strange spirit, I knew him to be a loving man before we got married, but I didn’t know what came over him.
Doctor Wakina love spell was so great and powerful, my estranged husband’s attitude and urge for evil changed just after 8 days of the completion of the love spell. The reasons why I can recommend Dr. Wakina to anyone are, his love spell is real and it works, Doctor wakina don’t cast love spell that is against anyone’s wish and his love spell lasts for eternity. I have been observing my husband’s behavior for more than 9 months, he is still the same, he has never stopped loving me again, the love keep growing each day and we keep prospering with the blessings that follows Doctor Wakina’s love spell. That’s the reason why I can recommend him to anyone event to my worst enemy… to email him via dr.wakinalovetemple@gmail.com
