Parents - Non-biological parents

Non-biological parents are those who are raising a child that isn’t biologically connected to them. This includes a step mother, step father or a family member or friend of the family who is helping to raise a child. Non-biological parents aren’t always aware that they are not the biological parent of a child. Quite often, infidelity in a relationship can lead to one parent discovering that their child isn’t biologically theirs. But that aside, if you’re responsible for looking after a child or have been, particularly during their early years, you are as good as a biological parent to them.

Looking after a child that isn’t biologically your own can be a rewarding experience, but it can also have its difficulties. Non-biological parents can often feel ignored, disrespected or undervalued. Remember though, you’re not alone. There are lots of people in the same situation and sometimes it helps to get other perspectives on your situation.
