Review: The Happy Stepmother by Rachelle Katz

You found the love of your life, and you vowed to have, to hold and to stepmother. You always thought that in time you'd grow to be the perfect, loving family. So why does it seem that the harder you try, the more unappreciated you feel?

As a stepmother, therapist and founder of the popular Web site stepsforstepmothers.com, Dr. Rachelle Katz knows all too well how challenging stepmotherhood can be. Based on thousands of in-depth interviews and the latest research, she's created a powerful program to help you:

* Alleviate stress and take care of yourself
* Bond with your new family
* Set and enforce clear boundaries
* Get the respect you deserve
* Strengthen your relationship

Received from the publicist for review.

Quite obviously I am not a stepmother, but I still found this intriguing.

While the print was eye strainingly small, the material presented was interesting. Actually, after reading this I'm tremendously relieved that I don't have stepchildren to contend with! Frankly, if more women read this before they got married to a man who already had children there would be far fewer divorces.

This one gets four stars. If you are one of the women regretting marrying into an established family, this is  probably a good first choice to consider before marriage counseling. If you are engaged to a man who has children, this would also be a wise resource to consult before you tie the knot and then have to go through a messy divorce before you're even finished paying off the wedding.

★★★★ = Really Liked It
