Creating and Recreating Families in America TodayBook - 2001
In an era when teachers commonly report that up to half of the children in their classes come from multiple homes and have multiple caretakers, the special psychological challenges of step-parenting have never been in greater need of examination. As thoughtful clinicians have long known, step-parenting is among the most complicated of psychological projects: it may simultaneously be a multi-faceted burden and a spur to personal autonomy, deepened sensitivity to others, and newfound competence as a nurturer. Among the thousands of divorced people who remarry each year, most - despite their best resolve to live in the present - persist in reassessing the price of separation, especially as they come to appreciate the fact that divorce is seldom a total break for their children.
