Publisher's Description

The stepmother's role often is ambiguous and underappreciated, and frequently it carries unrealistic expectations. The book answers women's concerns and questions, including: How can I be a caretaker and a key emotional connector in the family if the children don't accept my influence? How shoud I cope with children who are confused about their family and torn between loyalty to their biological mother and me? When should I step back in conflicts and when should I insist that my husband stand up for me? In addition it addresses the spiritual and emotional climate of the home, providing perspective and guidelines to help stepmothers and their families thrive.

    I thought this book would be geared towards blended families, but it seems to me that it is for a child-less mom marrying a man with children. The principles can be applied to two families blending, but it is a stretch for those hurting to be able to do this.

    It is great and eye-opening for the child-less woman....

    This book tells the whole truth of the challenges specific to step families. A must read before you say 'I do' that will also be helpful if you already have remarried.

    Being a step mom at 47 and never having children has been trialsome, but through the understanding of this book I have been able to release alot of burdens that I have been carrying. Boundaries are a huge asset to being an effective step mom, but knowledge of the loyalty no matter what deepens my faith and trust that they love me under all the pain whether they say it or not. Actions speak louder than words in step parenting.

    I have an entirely different stepmom "situation" than those two that were covered in the book. I am a woman raising the child of an absent biological mother and twins who don't remember their parents really being together because they were two when the split happened. It did give good "general" advise, but I did not get the deeper understanding of my own situation that I was seeking...
