Family and Child Development


Stepparents have a ready-made family from the very beginning. The new family members must learn to live together. The stepchildren and stepparents have to learn to get along although these processes take time and are not easy. The Extension resources in this section are designed for adults that are part of stepfamilies in helping them build strong families.
