The Step-parents' Parachute : The Four Cornerstones of Good Step-Parenting, Paperback

The Step-parents' Parachute : The Four Cornerstones of Good Step-Parenting Paperback



In a society where 1 in 4 marriages now end in divorce, the traditional model of the nuclear family unit has radically changed.

A startling 1 in 10 families in the UK (the statistics are double this in the US) grow up as part of a step family.

Yet this phenomenon is still hopelessly unchartered territory, where the image of the wicked step-mother still presides. Flora McEvedy could find nothing to help her when she became a step-mother at the age of 28 and the unique passion and energy of this book stems from her experiences.

The Step-parents' Parachute will endow the reader with a body of instantly accumulated knowledge.

Neatly organised, easy to use, practical and positive, this inspirational book will offer a path through a subject riven with negative assumptions and enable the transformation of the step-family into a happy, rewarding and stable family home.
