I have often said that if I were forced to give one piece of advice regarding stepparenthood, this would be it.  Shame the Parent, Shame the Child.  Always remember that when you bad mouth the parent, you might as well be saying the same thing to your children.  It is a painful, painful place.

Today, we'll talk about some of the dynamics behind the concept of shame and parents and children.  Most importantly, we'll review a few tips to make sure that we don't make this mistake.
