For most of the 20 million stepfamilies in America, the simple, daily issues that challenge every family are even more difficult to navigate. After conducting a comprehensive 10-year study funded by the National Institutes of Health, Dr. James Bray at last reveals the strategies that help stepfamilies succeed. This book targets the conflicts that can throw a family into crisis and explores which types of stepfamilies are more vulnerable. Bray also outlines the natural lifecycle of stepfamilies and describes all of the essential tasks they must perform in order to succeed. With a wealth of insight into the positive effects of remarriage, Bray proves that a loving, well-functioning stepfamily can actually heal the scars of divorce and restore a sense of security for stepchildren - as well as their parents.
