What to Expect from a Step-Family

Years ago I read article in a step-family magazine that said step-parents should expect the age of the child who has entered into a step-family to double before the children will truly feel comfortable with you as a parent.

For example, a parent who marries and has a two year old child, the child will likely feel bonded with the step parent by age 4!

What was most disturbing was the idea that a ten year old would be twenty before they really saw the step-parent as a real parenting figure!
