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. It is common for adults who have to cope with other people's children to suffer from feelings of isolation, guilt and anxiety. Drawing on case-study material to address common fears, anxieties and problems, and presenting strategies for resolving problems and coming to terms with one's feelings, this book explores family politics from both the adult's and the child's point of view. It also examines the role of grandparents, and the new issues which arise if the new couple decide to have children of their own.
