Stepfamily Central – Coaching a Stepmother

We all know that being a parent is the hardest job in the world; few realize that being a stepparent is just as challenging if not more so. We’re not going to talk about this in the abstract, we’re going to get into the nitty-gritty of what makes being a stepparent so difficult by listening to Rachelle Katz coach a stepmother who struggles as she watches her husband and his ex-wife treat her stepson with kids gloves because of his special needs. Listen to what a typical coaching session is like. Glimpse the love and compassion this stepmother has for her stepson. Also, feel her concern for his future welfare that he’s not learning the necessary skills required to become an independent and competent adult. The feelings associated with being a stepparent are complex and diverse.
