Diply Social Team
Diply | Diply

Meet our 27-year-old heroine, married to Kevin and stepmom to adorable 6-year-old Becca. Kevin shares parenting duties with his ex, Wendy, who's proven to be a handful. Our stepmom has been a part of Becca's life since she was a baby, and no, she wasn't the other woman. She's been dealing with Wendy's high-conflict personality and constant harassment, all while trying to maintain a healthy relationship with Becca. But when Wendy's car got repossessed and she demanded our stepmom to drop Becca off, she decided to put her foot down.🚫🚗

Stepmom's Stand: A Bold Move or a Step Too Far? 🧐

Our stepmom found herself in a tight spot when Wendy's car was repossessed and she was left without a ride for Becca. Despite Wendy's pleas, our stepmom decided not to play taxi, following the parenting plan to the letter. Her husband, Kevin, agrees, but a friend thinks they should've put their differences aside for Becca. Becca, however, seemed content to stay with her dad and stepmom. Wendy's reaction? Accusations of alienation and a barrage of calls and messages. It's a complex situation, with no easy answers. Let's see what the internet thinks of this tricky co-parenting conundrum. 🍿
