14. It was rude and dismissive

I've never been a stepmom, but my daughter is a stepmom to EIGHT kids, and has been deeply involved in the raising of six of them since they were teenagers. Not one of them has ever said to her, "You are NOT my mom!" when there was an issue involved, even though none of them actually call her "mom". Every one of them has lived with her since they were teens and two of them still do, including one who had never had a stable home until he found it with her and his dad, and one who does so by choice although she's now 21. Katy Tur needs to get over herself with that idea.
