Cathryn's reading list (10.21.11)
Stepmonster! This book climbs inside our heads. It is so good; I read it so eagerly the first time because it validates us and our experiences. We are not crazy. We ARE being mistreated by our stepchildren regardless of age. Stepmothers DO have a miserable time over stepfathers. There is NO SUCH THING as a blended family. How totally wonderful to be validated. I cried. I've begged DH to read it. I would like to purchase copies to hit non-stepfamily-trained psychologists over the head. At last! A book that totally "gets" the burden of being a stepmother and doesn't encourage "trying harder" to see the stepchild's point of view. If you are here and you are defeated by step parenting and feel you are at your lowest low, go directly to Kindle or Amazon or your bookstore and read this book. It is a breath of fresh air.
You're welcome. Please let me know what you thought.
