Becoming a step parent is something that must be reconsidered when deciding to take on the responsibility of taking care and guarding other couple’s children. I have witnessed both pros and cons of becoming a step parent first had. My father has only had one biological child (me). Leaving my older sister and my two older brothers to be his step children. I had a brief conversation with him regarding becoming a step parent.

I asked him whether the pros of being a step parent outweigh the cons of that situation. He said it was a difficult question to ask because he has now raised all of us and he won’t say that raising all four of his children wasn’t a blessing or worth it, because he loves us all. However, he said that there was a point where he thought he would be able to go through with it because he was so young and poor.

My father met my mother when she was 25 and he was 21. He fell in love with her not knowing that she had three children at home. Then when he learned that out, he knew it would be unethical to judge a woman by her family. Therefore, he decided to marry her and have one more child. He said that pros included being able to have more children and sharing that experience with more is always joyful.

However, he did mention that more children cause a lot more problems such cons include the fact that some of these children will never actually consider him their father although he has cared for them and offered them more. Also the chore of one baby is enough for a poor couple to be extremely troubled. He took on the responsibility of 3 others. I have learned that if one chooses to carry out a relationship where step parenting is a must it can be really rewarding but if one chooses to split up then all that struggle was for nothing.
