    One thought on “The Happy Stepmother: Thrive in Your New Family

    1. Jeni Filipiak

      I can't remember the last time that I didn't finish a book, but I had to stop reading this one. I had the impression that the author wanted me to accept that my family would never be whole, and that I would never be happy. I dreaded picking up this book every time I looked at it after about the first 20 pages, and I eventually decided to put it down for good after about 100 pages. Not every situation is the worst-case scenario, but you sure wouldn't know it from this book. Being passive-aggressi [...]

      This is a great book and a must read for any stepmother! I wish I had read it when I first started dating my boyfriend that is divorced with two children. I no longer feel 'alone' and feel a since if relief that 'it's not me!' This book is not a b*tch session, it gives real life advice, tools and resources. I did a quick read though and now am working though the sections I feel impact me the most. It really is helping me adjust from being a single women with little to no responsibilities to the [...]

    3. Christy

      Good advice and guidance on understanding your role as a Stepmom in a blended family. I read this book over 3 years ago when I was first starting out on this adventure and just re-read. Still information and helpful.

    4. Kimberly

      Started reading this book to help with my new challenge of being a (for all intents & purposes) stepmother to Alyssa and Mikey (and maybe Johnny, someday, I hope). I found the preface and first two chapters to be very good, very informative and helpful. I could relate to some of what was discussed, and fortunately, some of the issues other women face I have not had to deal with (such as, their partners not being supportive of them). But I've had to deal with jealous ex-wife and parental alie [...]

      I think this is a very good resource. out helped me feel like I'm not the only one dealing with these situations, it gives ideas and things to try to improve different scenarios but most importantly it is permissive, even at times encouraging it. Permission to step away and not have the guilt of responsibility and to take time for yourself despite what craziness may be going on at home. a happy stepmother makes a happy family :)

    6. Lois

      I liked the beginning of the book and it definitely helped me identify my own wrong thought patterns and work towards making more realistic expectations. But then it became a very self-focused book. I just don't think that it is correct that we need to love ourselves FIRST or THE MOST. This is contrary to my core beliefs and I found it difficult to relate to the rest of the book.

    7. Emily

      Most of this book was general "take care of you and your heart" advice, but there were some good personal testimonies in it. The biggest take-away is the online community Katz started, for step-mothers to get some support from each other.

    8. Lisa

      It has been awhile since I've read a step-parenting book, having been a step mother for 8 years now. It was full of sound advice, examples and feelings I related to, and it was reassuring, as always, to know that I am not alone in this journey!

    9. Diane Drennan Pavia

      A lot of this book didn't apply to me b/c I am lucky and am in a great step situation, but it did make me feel a little less crazy, alone, and selfish. Highly recommend for women in tough step situations who really need advice and coping skills.

    10. Trish

      I found this book very helpful on all different levels. I related to it and it offered lots of opportunities to journal and that is super helpful to me.
