9780091813581: The Relate Guide To Second Families: Living Successfully With Other People's Children

According to statistics 1 in 3 people in the UK today are likely to be involved in a step-family of some sort at some point in their lives. Although now a socially accepted norm, the 'step-family' still suffers from a negative image and is likely to have to deal with a wider range of emotional and practical issues than the original family unit. In a 'step family' the child comes as part of the package and it is common for adults who have to cope with 'other people's children' to suffer from feelings of isolation, guilt and anxiety. Coming to terms with the on-going role of your partners 'ex' can test the most stable relationship to its limits. This book draws on case study material to address common fears, anxieties and problems and presents strategies for resolving problems and coming to terms with your feelings. It takes a candid look at family politics from the adult point of view as well as the children's. It looks at the role of grandparents - and the new issues which arrive if you and your partner decide to have children of your own.
