Overview

There are 25 million stepparents in the United States today and until this book very little has been written that defines their problems and offers advice on an inevitably conflict-ridden situation. How does a stepparent deal with natural hostility encountered from the new children? Should the natural parent side with the spouse or the children? Can the families coexist and cooperate, even though, in a sense, they are competitors? The resentment and the heartache of being a pawn in an insidious war between loved ones, the incredible traffic problems that accompany seasonal shifts of children, the love and understanding that can grow-all this is here described with honesty and sensitivity.

By identifying the roots of the problems and showing how some families have coped with them, Living in Step helps steppeople achieve family harmony they often did not think possible.
