This is good but it's 2021 now. I think we should go with Kids Plus. Like a streaming app.

This is a great term. I think the struggle is partly to not have to explain it every time? Since that's not a common term here(sadly), people here will find that odd and are gonna be asking questions and you are back to explaining it's your girlfriend's kids... which honestly is similar to how calling them stepkids is going. But the one pro of stepkids is you can use it with people out in the world that don't matter and there will be no questions, so the conversation moves faster.

Maybe Keith could use stepkids for those situations, and then for the people who matter he can say whatever he wants. I switch between using "my sister's dad" and "my dad" when it helps make my life easier(usually when I'm dealing with customer service for him). I think it could be fun to say Bonus Kids on the show and see how guests react. He has to explain stepkids sometimes to people anyway, why not have some fun with it and try out other terms.

I don't think it's weird that Keith calls Kyle's kids his step-kids. It shows that even though they're not married, it is a serious relationship and he takes his position within those kids' lives seriously.

I think it shows a lot of un-learning we have to do in regards to placing the importance on marriage with a certificate. Both Keith and Chemda have been married before, and I feel like coming out the other end of that you should get to see what significance official marriage plays within your life. Chemda and Xerxes live together but you don't hear her calling herself a step-mother. And that's fine! Let Keith play step-dad, he's clearly enjoying the role. I think it's nice

When women ask if I'm married I say, "Nope!" Just so there's no confusion.
