If you’re 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 you’re 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? • What’s the best way to get along with your stepchild’s mother? • When should you seek a therapist’s help? Burns’s 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.

One in three people in the UK is part of a stepfamily. Remarriages now make up 38% of weddings and many of these marriages involve children from previous relationships on both sides. It's an unfortunate statistic that 70% of blended families break up within the first three years. Seven years ago Jo Danks was in that very situation. She had a daughter from a previous marriage and was head over heels in love with a man in a similar position. She desperately needed help and guidance but while there were many books available on being a stepmother, there were none which could advise her on being a blended stepmother. So after several years of learning on the job, she decided to write the definitive guide to the challenges facing the soon-to-be stepmother. With the inclusion of testimonies from other blending stepmothers, life coaches and counsellors, fun self-assessment exercises and the help of lively characters based on the author's young adolescent family, FROM MOTHER TO STEPMOTHER gives encouragement, practical guidance and a strong sense of fellowship to blending stepmothers everywhere.

The Birth Of An Adoptive Foster Or Stepmother

Adoptive, foster and stepmothers, like biological mothers, find their lives completely changed by motherhood although they are not always granted the rights and privileges accorded to those who give birth. Barbara Waterman explores the common experiences that are shared by all those who enter the motherhood portal. She highlights the importance of wider family, community and professional support for non-biological parents and primary care-givers of both genders, and their children. A stepmother herself and a practicing psychologist, Waterman's writing is illustrated throughout with vignettes of children and parents from a range of backgrounds. She shows the important ways in which a non-biological attachment is both more similar to and more different from a biological attachment than is currently understood. In doing this, Waterman broadens the notion of the `traditional' family, and offers a positive alternative to the myth of the perfect mother. All kinds of step-, adoptive and foster families and those coming into contact with them will find this thoroughly researched and personal book an indispensable guide.

A Celebration Of Frances Burney

On the two hundred and fiftieth anniversary of the birth of the writer Frances Burney (17521840), a window to her memory was placed in the arched recess of stained glass that graces Poets Corner. Novelist, playwright and diarist, Frances Burney is one of the few women accorded such an honour. She joins the likes of Jane Austen, Charlotte Bront and George Eliot who might in some ways be seen as her literary heirs. Burneys journey to recognition on the stage of the world has been a long one, crowned finally with triumph. The service marked the mid-point of a two-day conference in which various aspects of Burneys life and achievement were canvassed. Her journals and letters, her novels and plays (both comedies and tragedies), her life, family and context were all given serious scholarly treatment. This volume includes the papers presented at the conference, which cover the many facets of a remarkable career and represent the broad spectrum of scholarly approaches to the entire opus of Frances Burney. It shows how far Burney has come from being dismissed as a minor precursor to Jane Austen to being recognized in her own right as a powerful, complex and influential writer, whose works had considerable impact on her own and subsequent generations.
