As a bonus mom, or step-parent, this might be the first time you’ve been in a position to care for a child. With a little work and a lot of patience, you can make it work! I wanted to share some tips from my own experience that helped me become empowered as a non-traditional parent. When it comes to parenting, you don’t have to be a perfect mother.
