Article: My Daughter Confides in Her Stepmom and Not Me

I know there are many blended families here at and I'm wondering if you've ever encountered this. During my previous marriage I had a 16 year old stepdaughter and I know she told me things she never told her mom. I was a good role model though, so her mom was not outwardly upset.

Have you experienced this? Whether it be from the mom or stepmoms standpoint? How did you react and do you agree with Rosalind's advice on how to deal with the situation?
