Growing Up in Stepfamilies

Synopsis

Millions of children in Britain now grow up in stepfamilies, but little is reliably known about their experiences of stepfamily life--or why some of these young people encounter problems in the long run while other flourish. This is a new, pioneering, multidisciplinary study that tracks the lives of fifty children born in 1958, offering unique insights into the long-term effects of stepfamily life in the UK today. It will interest many scholars and students of sociology, social policy, public policy/administration, and psychology.
