Is there any rights that say that the stepparent is not to address the child as their actual parent. My two year old daughters step-parent is teaching her that she is her mother and having my daughter call her mom. They aren't married, she's just his girlfriend and my daughter is too young and I think she can be easily confused. Although they only get her every other weekend, I still feel that I should have rights in that area. If anyone knows of any rights or law codes about this situation it would be greatly appreciated if you respond. Thank You.

In my opinion you should talk to your daughter and teach her you got one mommy. And only one mom. Your X's has no right to do that to you or his daughter it will just confuse her.

I would talk to the woman and your ex directly, politely and firmly demand that your child not call her "mom". You should all agree on what she should be addressed as.

If she gives you a hard time, I would talk to your ex alone and tell him this is confusing to your child, disrespectful to you and borders on emotional abuse.

If they still don't cooperate, I would put a request with the courts that the child not be around your exes girlfriend since her actions are jeopardizing your mother/ daughter relationship.

I would also make sure to call her by her given name to your daughter and whenever your daughter talks about her, reinforce in her the habit of using her actual name.

Tell your daughter in a gentle, but loving way that your are her only MOM and the only one special enough to be her mom. Don't trash talk the other woman but let your daughter know having a relationship with her is great but she is just "Stacy".

People are unbelievable. I could see if they were married she could be Momma Stacy or something similar and then be officially be her step mom, but geez! she's a girlfriend.
