Stepparents' Affinity-Seeking and Affinity-Maintaining Strategies with Stepchildren.
Ganong, Lawrence; Coleman, Marilyn; Fine, Mark; Martin, Patricia
Journal of Family Issues, v20 n3 p299-327 May 1999
Examines the strategies that stepparents use to develop and maintain affinity with stepchildren and the effects that these strategies have on the development of stepparent-stepchildren relationships. Thirty-one affinity-seeking strategies are identified. Results show that dyadic activities worked best, but it is important that stepchildren recognize affinity-seeking attempts. (Author/MKA)
