I’ve always been a big believer of “knowledge is power” and as I started out on the stepmom road, I was anxiously looking for good, positive, actionable information.
Here is a short list of resources that have been invaluable to me and my husband:
“The Smart Stepmom” by Ron L. Deal and Laura Petherbridge
“The Divorced Child” by Joseph Nowinski, Ph.D.
“Helping Your Kids Cope with Divorce the Sandcastles Way” by M. Gary Neuman, L.M.H.C.
You wouldn’t think of Twitter as a resource, however, I have found a great stepmom network on Twitter that I have come to rely on. The Twitter stepmoms I have listed in the footer below are great women who are positive and believe in supporting stepmoms and blended families.
