This Stepdad Has The Right Idea Of How To Treat Their Spouse’s Child

Can a stepparent have a healthy and nurturing relationship with their stepchildren?

The obvious answer is yes, but it never gets old seeing such a relationship done right. As an online divorce review site, we see many of you take up your responsibilities as stepparents with seriousness and little fanfare, but it never hurts to be celebrated. Today we’re reminded of that in the story of NASCAR driver Brian Scott, who made the following vow to his three-year-old stepdaughter Brielle at his wedding to Brielle’s mother in 2011.

“I promise to always hold your hand and skip with you down the street and bring comfort to your life,” he said. “I vow to make you say your prayers before you eat. I promise to read you stories at night and to always tuck you in real tight. I vow to show you how a man should treat a woman in my relationship with your mother. And above all else, I vow to protect you, care for you and love you forever.”

Since that time, Huffington Post reports, Scott and his wife, Whitney, have made good on that promise for Brielle and even added a baby brother to the mix.

Joseph was born in 2014, and according to Scott, in a followup interview, he’s enjoying fatherhood, a title he attaches to both Brielle and Joseph.

“Just being there for [the kids] and enjoying family moments together and playing with them and hearing them laugh and seeing them smile — all of those things are so much better than any of the negative aspects people like to bring up about having kids. It’s not baggage — it’s great addition [to my life].”

It’s an unfortunate reality of life, but there are many biological parents who aren’t this committed to their children. Scott seeing his stepdaughter and his biological son as his children and the life he and Whitney are making for the pair, are refreshing things to see. Are you a stepparent, or did you grow up with one? What are some of the best aspects of the stepparent-stepchild relationship? Sound off in the comments section.
