feel like they are entitled to that kid? I've noticed it a lot that whenever a girl starts dating a guy who has a kid with someone, they think they are automatically like step mommy and being overly disrespectful to the child's mother. I recently saw a girl on FB post pictured of her bf's kid and saying stuff like she doesn't care if the baby'd mom sees and just being rude. I could see that the new girlfriend could be intimidated but that's something she should know beforehand and if she couldn't deal with it then don't date the guy. Have you sen this before, and what do you think of it?

Yeah I've actually seen this too. I know a girl who buys her boyfriends kids clothes all the time and everything, and then takes a picture of them wearing their new clothes and posts it on Facebook and says "Clothes I bought for my kids!" And I think they aren't your kids! You're not even married to him, so you aren't a step mother either. You're just the girlfriend. It's good for a girl to take interest in his kids, but you're not their mother. They already have a mother. I come from a single mother, and one thing I can say is, I hated it when my moms boyfriends acted like they were my father. So you have to look at it from the kids point of view as well. They're probably already going to resent that their mom or dad is dating, it's going to make them mad when that boyfriend/girlfriend tries to replace their mother/father.1
