Stepfamilies: Second Chance or Second-Rate?
Barney, Jo
Phi Delta Kappan, v72 n2 p144-47 Oct 1990
About half of all American marriages now end in divorce. Many divorces involve children whose parents remarry and create step-relationships. Educators should help normalize the idea of stepfamilies, send communications recognizing family diversity, train school personnel appropriately, enlist the school counselor's assistance, and provide small-group discussion opportunities. Includes four references and a stepfamily booklist. (MLH)
