This #1-Selling e-book was written for the stressed-out, overwhelmed step mom who may be dealing with a difficult ex-wife/mother of her stepchildren. It's a quick guide to help step moms find reasonable solutions, while also finding their own strength and courage.
It's Not My Step kids - It's Their Mom! is brief, practical and easy to read. It addresses an almost universal concern that all step moms have to some degree. Rarely do step moms and birth moms become the best of friends. Usually, there is some tension in the relationship, and it can sometimes be almost paralyzing for the step mom because the birth mom typically has so much legal power. This book helps the step mom do what she can with the power she has.
The book begins by encouraging the step mom to understand the birth mom's motives, while always stressing how important it is that step mom and birth mom try to have a tolerant, if not amicable, relationship. Then it addresses several topics that usually arise in this relationship, from manipulation to harassment, and offers some practical methods for dealing with them. There is a chapter on the importance of documentation as well. The book concludes with a positive story of a healing stepmom/birthmom relationship.
