Creating "Stability" for Children in Step-Families: Time and Substance in Parenting.
Edwards, Rosalind
Children & Society, v16 n3 p154-67 Jun 2002
Discusses ways that family policy conceptions of stability for children are tied to a particular family form and to maintaining continuity in biological parenting obligations, while parenting research has focused on measuring consequences of changing family forms for children. Asserts that stepfamily members have more complex understandings about creating stability for children in their care, around issues of continuity/discontinuity in linear time, and the social/material substantive constitution of stability.
