4 REASONS to LEARN
1. Stepfamily relationships are everywhere.
One out of three children
under 18 lives in a stepfamily.
One out of four new marriages
creates a stepfamily.
42% of American adults are currently
in a close step relationship.
2. The challenges are intense.
The phrase "blended family"
does not describe the daily experience
of most people who live in a stepfamily,
especially in the early years.
The challenges can be overwhelming for both adults and kids.
3. What works is not intuitive.
Blogs, tweets, and Facebook pages are dispensing well-meaning, but
all too often, misleading advice.
4. We do know what works!
There is help:
an accessible, engaging,
evidence-based guide for stepfamily members,
clinicians, and others who want to help.
