The term “BONUS” parent has just recently grown on me.
My parents divorced when I was around 8. I believe He dated a few women, but I only remember three. One was rather unremarkable. One was one there for what she thought she could get. The one that stood out was amazing. She spent time with me and treated me like her biological child. The other two were just nice to me so they could get in good with my father. I gave them hell. Yes, it was on purpose. Despite what you may think, kids can judge character. There is something about a divorce that sharpens your senses.
In this episode, I recount how important it is to be a stellar step parent. Be a bonus parent. I had the pleasure of having a bonus parent that was super involved and really took an interest in me. I also had the displeasure of having a step parent. Just a warm body.
This episode is a shout out to Bonus Parents. They really make a difference. The sacrifices don’t go unnoticed. You guys are the real MVP.
