National Stepmom Day

Honoring Your Stepmoms on "National Step Mother's Day" Monday

More often than not, stepmothers do their best to take care of the children of their husbands, even if they are not blood-related. They care for and raise their stepchildren as if she gave birth to them. Stepmothers provide them with energy, time, emotional, and even financial support. The celebration of Mother’s day may be awkward to some especially since its essence is founded on the bond between mothers and their biological children. Hence, for the purpose of inclusiveness, people celebrate Stepmom’s Day in order for children to honor their ever hardworking stepmom.
