- Su casa ¡no es mi casa! Ever heard the famous saying: Mi casa es su casa? Well, don’t take this literally. When you are an adult and you go to visit your dad and your stepmom, that is your dad’s and your stepmother’s house, not yours!
- Respect her beliefs. If she has santos and vírgenes all over the house and you happen to not share her beliefs, do not say anything negative. Again, refer to the above!
- Treat her with respect. Apply the golden rule. Always be the bigger person. Instead of being confrontational, be assertive. If there is anything you do not agree with, express it but be cordial.
- Be inclusive. Although my father has been married to his current wife for 16 years, I still have to ask her personally and invite her directly to join us in activities. If I don’t, she does not feel invited and resents it, so I always act like the bigger person and tell her: I would really love for you to go with us or Maria, I want us all to go to the beach today. She always accepts the invitation.
