Since 1985 when Cheri Burns published this funny, helpful book, stepmothers have felt relieved and no longer so alone

Since 1985 when Cheri Burns published this funny, helpful book, stepmothers have felt relieved and no longer so alone. Burns, a stepmother herself, wrote the book to help fellow travelers understand the dynamics and conflicts of their role and navigate the stormy waters of "Expectations," "Guilt," "The Wicked Ex-Wife," "Discipline," "Vacations," and more. Stepmotherhood remains a vital guide for any woman who is either contemplating stepmotherhood or who is already there.

A must read for all stepmoms! By Thriftbooks. com User, April 5, 2006. I can't begin to put into words how inspiring and wonderful this book is. I so wish I had read it BEFORE we got married. I could have saved myself a whole lot of frustration, tears and resentment. There still are those days when the stress level and anxiety are off the charts, but I feel I'm handling the situations better. I learned to pick my battles. I will survive! 0. Report.

A stepmother and mother herself, writer Cherie Burns has interviewed stepmothers across the country and consulted extensively with family counselors to produce the bold compassionate book on a much neglected subject. Stepmotherhood covers the entire range of experience that every stepmother faces: from what to do when your stepchildren refuse to look you in the eye, compare your cooking to "Mom's," or pit you against your husband to how to cope with ex-wives, visitation schedules, vacations guilt and anger. Money, discipline, housework, sex, and the complications of a two-family holiday are among the subjects explored by Burns, and their are also sections on the special problems of being married to a widower and the stepmother's desire to have her own children.

Most women underestimate the demands (or expect too much) of stepmothering, and Burns' most important advice is to know what your getting into. Frank, insightful, and eminently practical, she describes the anxieties and frustrations as well as the humor and emotional payoffs involved in this much misunderstood role. An indispensable book for any family that includes a stepmother.

Excellent book for normalizing a tough and multifaceted situation. There is no 'right' answer but all the feelings associated with the role are real. Good read for fathers as well who may want to understand their wives perspective. The book does a good job of living up to its title.

This book was an excellent overview for a new step-mom. It has delightful and poignant life-experiences from real step-moms and even biological fathers. Mostly, it lets you know that you are not alone in your feelings for your step-child, even if those feelings are negative. Allows you to see yourself as part of a community, rather than alone in the world and in this particular situation. Helps you to focus on what is important and advises you to let go of the rest. Excellent chapters on focusing on your marriage, how to handle vacations with the step-children, dealing with your husband's ex-wife, and when to get help. All in all, a very fine book.

I first bought this book for myself about 30 years ago when I was about to become the stepmother of four, including some teens. I found it to be practical, very useful and realistic, and quite readable. I just bought the latest edition to give to my niece who is becoming a stepmother herself. Cleary this book as passed the test of time if it's still in publication for over 30 years!

A good aid in making you not feel that the situation you may be facing in your life as a stepmother is insurountable and makes you realise that no matter how much effort you put into being a good stepmother, you will never be thier mother.
Gives many references to interviewed stepmothers which was interesting and very relatable.

This was the second book I picked up on Step-mothering, and I found it to be tremendously helpful and informative. This book focused not just on what the children need from you, but on what YOU need for yourself-- everything from personal time away from kids to the supportive partner you're desperately going to need. It didn't sugarcoat anything; the whole messy picture is laid out for the reader, but I didn't finish the book feeling hopeless or overwhelmed. I highly recommend it.

This book really helped me to understand why my boyfriend's children were acting the way they did towards me. It is a must read for any woman who is married to or dating a man with children. It is also great to share with the father, so that they can understand how we feel.

After I finished the read, I shared this with my mother and father to read, as the blended family characteristics are new to them as well. My father remarked, "There isn't any positive message," in the book. "I am not alone," was my response. It was an easy read and I was also comfortable sharing portions with my new spouse. I anticipate reading it once a year for the rest of my life.
I'm going to be moving in with my boyfriend and his young son in a few weeks, and I ordered "Stepmotherhood" and "The Enlightened Stepmother: Revolutionizing the Role" to give me a little preparation for what I should expect. I found that "The Enlightened Stepmother..." gave a much more thorough discussion on the difficulties of stepparenting as well as giving creative and helpful tips on getting through the hard times, whereas this book emphasized the negative aspects of the situation you might be facing. "Stepmotherhood" gave very few suggestions of how to deal with individual problems that might come up, and didn't seem to have been researched half as thoroughly as "The Enlightened Stepmother..." whose authors interviewed hundreds of stepmothers from all walks of life for help with their material, in addition to being stepmothers themselves. If you're looking for one book to both support you in the hard times and give you directions to the good times, I'd thoroughly recommend "The Enlightened Stepmother: Revolutionizing the Role," but I'm going to return this book.
