The Special Problems of Stepfamilies
The stepfamily has become a common type of household in many parts of the world. Yet, stepfamilies have unique problems. The most challenging is undoubtedly child rearing. However, as the two articles that follow will try to show, it is possible to rear children successfully in a stepfamily environment. TRADITIONALLY, STEPFATHERS AND STEPMOTHERS HAVE HAD A BAD PRESS. WHEN WE WERE children, many of us heard some version of the fairy tale of Cinderella, who suffered so much at the hands of her cruel stepmother. Children in Europe learn, too, the fairy tale Snow White and the Seven Dwarfs. Snow White's stepmother turns out to be a wicked witch! Do such fairy tales give an accurate view of stepfamilies? Are all stepparents really so bad? No. Most of them want only what is best for the children they inherit by marriage. But they do have to face some difficult problems inherent in stepfamily life.

Did you know?
18 million people in the UK are part of a step-family in some way or another. And yet, most of us were not brought up in step-families, so we don't know much about them. Furthermore, I doubt if many of us had any ambition to be a step-parent - and we've definitely had no training. Small wonder then that a lot of people today find the whole step-family set up very difficult.

Extension educators can broaden efforts to positively affect family's experiences and children's development by delivering programs on relevant and recent family life research to community professionals. This represents a "second tier" of family life education and fits within an ecological perspective on human development. This theoretical framework recognizes multi-level environmental influences on human development. Specifically, community professionals represent factors outside the family that can affect family functioning. "Understanding Stepfamilies: Information and Strategies" is a 4-hour research update seminar for professionals who work with children and families. Responses to the program indicate receptiveness to similar Extension programs targeting professionals.
Rationale for the Program on Stepfamilies
Rationale for developing a professional seminar on stepfamilies centers on the following.

The Statistics Are Staggering:
One out of two marriages ends in divorce. Sixty percent of second marriages fail, according to the U.S. Census Bureau 66% of marriages and living together situations end in break up, when children are actively involved, according to Stepfamily Foundation statistics. It is predicted that 50% of children in the US will go through a divorce before they are 18. Approximately half of all Americans are currently involved in some form of step relationship. By the year 2000, according to the Census Bureau, more Americans will be living in step families than in nuclear families. In his 1994 study, "The Changing Character of Stepfamilies," Professor of Sociology Larry L. Bumpass of the University of Wisconsin challenges the common perception that the stepfamily is defined by marriage. His research states that:
  • About half of the 60 million children under the age of thirteen in this country are currently living with one biological parent and that parent's current partner. Nearly half of all women, not just mothers, are likely to live in a stepfamily relationship, when we include living-together families in our definition of the stepfamily.

Stepfamilies: We're Here to Stay
by Dawn Miller (January 7, 2006)
Stepfamilies represent a large chunk of the population. More people today in the United States live in stepfamilies, than in nuclear families. One in three Americans today is part of a stepfamily – we are stepparents, stepchildren, stepsiblings, and more. In one decade, from 1980 to 1990, the number of stepfamilies increased by more than 35%. We have a positive view of marriage, but our marriages are under stress from the demands of stepfamily life. Although one or both spouses in a stepfamily is previously married (and subsequently widowed or divorced), we continue to believe that marriage is worth emotionally investing in. Seventy-five per cent of the people divorcing today will eventually remarry and 43% of all marriages today are remarriages. The first four years in a stepfamily can be especially conflict-prone. Researchers point out that among ethnic groups, such as Asian-Americans and whites, where stepfamily life is less institutionalized and less “the norm,” marriages that form stepfamilies experience significant stress. more

57. Stepfamily - Wikipedia, The Free Encyclopedia
Traditionally, a stepfamily is the family one acquires when a parent enters a new marriage, whether the parent was widowed or divorced.
From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
Jump to: navigation search "Stepmom" redirects here. For the film of the same name, see Stepmom (film) Traditionally, a stepfamily is the family one acquires when a parent enters a new marriage , whether the parent was widowed or divorced . For example, if one's mother dies and one's father marries another woman, the new woman is one's stepmother. The counseling slogan "Stepfamilies are born out of loss" applies to such a case. In modern stepfamilies, there is recognition that the biological parents may never have married. Unless one biological parent of a stepchild is deceased, typical nuclear stepfamilies do not live in one house, consisting of three or more parents, biological and otherwise. It is also possible, in a less strict sense, that the new mate chooses the role of full- or part-time caregiver without marital commitment. However, it is generally understood that after a "child" reaches adulthood, a parent's subsequent marriage cannot create a stepparent relationship without the adult "child's" express written consent. In a simple stepfamily, only one stepparent has a prior child or children. Usually this is thought of in terms of minors, but the children of a stepfamily can also be adults. Stepbrothers and stepsisters exist in a

Parenting plans with kids in mind A sea change in family values? The 21st Century American family "When the kids aren’t happy, they’ll say things like, "I don’t like your new husband—he’s mean to me." That creates conflict in the marriage. In a first- marriage family, if a kid says, "I don’t like my dad,' the mom says, "So?'" James H. Bray
Baylor College of Medicine Stepfamily success depends on ingredients One in three Americans is part of a stepfamily, each with its own flavor. How can psychologists help them thrive? By Tori DeAngelis
Print version: page 58 If Tolstoy were alive today, he might have penned his famous line like this: Happy families are all alike—and every stepfamily is complex in its own way. Take one example. If a stepparent is frequently battling his former spouse, research shows that his children suffer. But if he is close with his ex-partner, his new spouse may feel anxious and insecure. On top of this, say experts, many children don’t view their step-parents as "real parents" for the first few years—if ever—and parents in second marriages may treat their biological children differently from their stepchildren. "Stepparents once were viewed as ‘replacing’ biological parents, thus recreating a two-parent family," notes University of Virginia (UVA) psychology professor Robert E. Emery, PhD, author of "The Truth about Children and Divorce: Dealing with the Emotions So You and Your Children Can Thrive" (Viking/Penguin, 2004). "Economically, there may be some truth to this, but psychologically, that is not the reality. Remarriage and stepparenting are new, tricky transitions for children, the stepparent and the biological parents."
