Publisher Comments:

If youre one of the more than 15 million stepmothers in the country, you know the particular trials—and joys—of stepfamily dynamics today. You wonder if youre doing the right thing and, as a stepmother, many of your specific questions are unique. In this second edition of Stepmotherhood: How to Survive Without

Feeling Frustrated, Left Out, or Wicked, journalist and stepmother Cherie Burns brings together countless insights and sound advice, based on the latest research and interviews with experts in the field (including dozens of other stepmoms), to answer questions such as:

• How do you manage discipline when parents and stepparents disagree?

• How can you help stepsiblings get along?

• How do you handle birthdays, holidays, and weddings?

• Whats the best way to get along with your stepchilds mother?

• When should you seek a therapists help?

Burnss wise and empathetic suggestions go beyond struggle, stigma, and compromise, showing how sensitive, informed stepmothers can take charge—and pride—in their role, becoming more effective and fulfilled.

Synopsis:

Journalist Cherie Burns, herself a stepmom of two, probes the issues that face 15 million stepmoms. Based on the latest research and interviews with expert therapists and dozens of stepmoms, this empathetic guide tackles such thorny problems as coping with expectations and guilt; communicating with "the wicked ex-wife" or the remarried ex-wife; disciplining stepkids; handling vacations, holidays, and family gatherings; bringing a new baby into the blended family; and when to seek therapy for larger problems.<P>A new introduction reflects on the social changes in the last 15 years since the first edition of the book — including the upward trend in stepfamilies — and a resource section guides readers to helpful websites.
