Michele Sfakianos is the Author of The 411 on Step Parenting!

Step parenting can be stressful and may be a difficult role to fulfill. Step families, also referred to as blended families, are more of the norm now more than ever. When families "blend" to create step families, things rarely progress smoothly. A few children may resist the changes occurring, while parents may become frustrated or disappointed when the new family does not appear to function like their previous family.
