Power Step Parenting- Mind Your Words

Ephesians 4:29 tells us let no corrupt talk come out of our mouths, but only such as good for building up, as fits the occasion, that I may give  grace to those who hear.

 This is a great practical application of the Bible in terms of what we say in front of our what’s said in front of the stepchildren especially about their biological parents,

  • Negative comments about your children’s other step parent or  your spouse’s ex spouse.
    • Adds to the stress already present in a step family
    • Slows down or halt building the blended family
    • Causes division between mom and dad
    • Causes a child to have to choose between two parents. Children have the right to love the other parent. Despite the parents bad behavior, etc. 
    • Step parents who criticize the biological parent will most lose. Criticism will only make you look bad.  The child has loyalties to the biological parent.
