Whether discussing money matters,visitation rights, the use of family names, discipline, sexual tensions, thepressure to "love," or the "instant parent" syndrome, the voices of thestepfamily members interviewed resonate long after the book is put down.Stepparents cannot help but recognize their own disappointments and joys inthese stories. All readers will find Making It as a Stepparent full of wise counsel and needed reassurance.
