A Study of Perceptions of the Stepparent Role.
Schwebel, Andrew I.; And Others
Journal of Family Issues, v12 n1 p43-57 Mar 1991
Tested whether there is social consensus about how stepparents should and will parent and whether stepparent roles are perceived as similar to biological and adoptive parent roles. College students (n=240) thought that stepparents were less obligated and less likely than biological and adoptive parents to engage in supportive parental behaviors called for in vignettes presented to them.
