Earn Their Trust Wednesday, February 26, 2020
Stepparents, don’t just aim for love, earn their trust. To have healthy relationships it really takes love and trust. One without the other doesn’t make for a solid relationship. Now, especially for adopted children, foster children, and stepchildren trust opens the door to love. Build trust by being emotionally and physically safe to be around; by showing them that you are committed, and you’ll never leave them; and by loving them on their worst day. And be trustworthy. Be a person they can trust, and you’ll be a person they can love.
