Step Parenting with Purpose: Everything you wanted to know but were too afraid to ask
Publisher: Vivid Publishing
Step Parenting with Purpose is a guidebook for those who have been thrown into the world of step-parenting. In this book Karalee Katsambanis – a journalist, and news and current affairs commentator with Sky TV News – draws from her personal experience as a step-parent to present a varied and colourful picture of the experience. There are many situations outlined, and pieces of useful advice in the book – from how to be a friend to a person going through a marriage break-up, to why it’s important to take down pictures of a son or daughter’s wedding if their marriage has ended. Katsambanis details common mistakes made by step-parents, their partners, parents and others, with a view to helping the reader learn ways to navigate this complex role. This would be a helpful book for someone who has become a step-parent, but also for friends and relatives of people who have become step-parents and would like some plain-spoken advice on the topic.
