Stepfamily Central – A Biological Dad’s Perspective of Stepfathers

In stepfamilies, it’s common for biological mothers and stepmothers to compare themselves to each other; sometimes intense rivalries can develop. Biological dads and stepfathers are not immune to competitive and jealous feelings. Today on Stepfamily Central, Rachelle talks to Joel Schwartzberg about a biological dad’s perspective of stepfathers. Joel is a father of three, and is an award winning humorist and essayist. His work has appeared in Newsweek, the New York Times Magazine, New Jersey Monthly, the NY Post, Stepmom Magazine among many other publications. His book, “THE 40-YEAR-OLD VERSION: HUMOIRS OF A DIVORCED DAD” can be found on where it’s in paperback or kindle, and has just been turned into an audio book as well.
