  • Product Description

Having a stepmother is not a new phenomenon. What is a more recent experience is having a stepmother and a living mother. Many children spend significant periods of time with their fathers and the women who are part-time or nonresidential stepmothers. Girls in stepfamilies, particularly girls who have stepmothers, are said to have adjustment problems that girls in nuclear families do not experience. But the risk for negative outcomes in children of divorce and remarriage may be mediated by resources that engender resiliency. This study examined the factors which are associated with positive relationships between daughters and their divorced mothers and their stepmothers. In-depth interviewing and qualitative methodology were used. Five styles of relationships were found to work for the participants, and unique qualities were discerned. The stepfamily literature reinforces a social construction of stepfamilies as negative environments for children, so therapists and mental health counselors may be susceptible to this negativity. This book counteracts this negativity by examining the positives, richness and possibilities of these relationships.
