Damn, OP. This really sucks! That's not cool that your ex and his girlfriend are having the kids call her that especially if their relationship is still so new.

Youch! I'm sorry... At least they're taking the divorce well. Because the main focus NOW should be on the children's well being... but stillll! FYL

Why? The first commenter was obviously sympathising with OP for the fact that this 'new' girlfriend of her ex-husband is already being called 'Mom'. Why is that hard for your to comprehend?

Honestly that was probably extremely heartbreaking to hear as the childrens real mother. To raise them their whole life, and then for them to call another women mom? I know my mom would be really upset. I love my step mom but i couldnt call her "mom".

It could be that her ex told the kids that this is her name, if the kids are very young they most likely believed it...

I never call my Step-Dad dad, but if I see my real dad, I won't accept him at all. I have my reasons, but it would hurt him

that sounds kinda sick. look at all the comments below. honestly maybe op misused the word new. they could been getting married. it's common to call the main female figures in your life mom.

My dad's fiancée keeps calling me and my little sister HER kids and spreads rumors about my mom being a whore. We are still beyond pissed. OP, don't let your ex's new wife call your children hers. Tell her who the real momma is and put her in her rightful place!

#25 I was instructed to call my step father "Dad" by my mother even though I really didn't want to. Kids will do what they're told if they have strict parents because they fear getting disciplined

Damn, 41. Some kids actually respect their parents, you know. Not every single kid in the history of forever is unruly.

@60, It's been a well-known issue that kids and even adults follow what authorities tell them to do no matter how strange or unethical it seems as seen in the Milgram experiment. In this situation though if the father did tell them to call his girlfriend "Mom," the kids are either placing their trust in their father and obeying what he tells them to do or they're being reinforced in some way to do it. It's not as unlikely as you make it seem.

Honestly it sounds to me like the children are young and it was a mistake. Children can get confused during break ups and it is possible for people to accidentally be called something else - how many people have called their teacher 'mum' by accident? If the kids really are calling the new girlfriend mum though, FYL OP... That's not a good feeling

60-- it really depends on how old the kids are. Young kids (8 or younger) tend to be very desperate and eager to please adults and parents-- hence the need to teach young children things like 'stranger danger'. It's also possible the girlfriend asked them to call her mom.

My child has been told by his dad to call every girlfriend mom. There have been at least ten different 'moms' he has been around. He is 8 now, so he doesn't do it, but before he felt he had to or he would be punished.

When I was young, and my parents divorced, I refused to ever call my step-mother mum, although I love her to bits. Sometimes if a child is young they may call adults mum and dad. Hell, I have called my teachers Mum! Or maybe it was a mistake :)
