"I think you handled it well. Maybe to take it a step further, next time when he's on with his mom, you can just step out of the room so he can't see you. Give him a heads up, when you talk to your mommy, I am going to step out but if you need anything, come get me. My kids would have been able to comprehend that at 5."

I agree. I'm sure your SS will be more relaxed when he talks to his Mom after a few more smooth phone calls.

Cin, it's really not about being a silent stepmom (IMO) it's about learning to pick your battles. Some battles are worth it, others are not. But I might pick a battle you would not, and vice versa. Nothing wrong with doing what works in your household.

Unfortunately, because of your past postings, it's probabaly hard for some forum members to NOT read into your post.

And honestly, some advice doesn't work across the board. Some advice might work in situation A but not in situation B. So when someone says butt out of one situation, it doesn't mean be a "silent stepmom" it just means they wouldn't have picked that battle in their life.
