As divorce and remarriage rates soar, stepfamilies are quickly becoming the rule rather than the exception. In The Truth about Stepfamilies, professional journalist and longtime stepmom Anne O'Connor shares personal stories of parents and children from across the country about their struggle to create their own family and traditions amidst the history that each person brings to the new household. She answers all the tough questions that this new family unit must face. Where does the new stepparent fit in? Who disciplines the kids? How do you manage the ex? Who pays for what? How are the kids affected? And,most importantly,does it ever get easier? O'Connor offers solid, practical advice bolstered by real-life examples to give readers the tools they need to create a happy, healthy family. The Truth about Stepfamilies shows that with knowledge, support, and hard work, life in stepfamilies can move from bitter resentment and anxiety to respect, tolerance, and love between family members.
