The March 2015 issue of StepMom Magazine is HERE!
The articles in this month’s issue are designed to help you go the distance in your role as a stepmom. Are you feeling burned out or unappreciated? Brenda Snyder’s article on disengaging will show you how to step back, regroup and keep going.
Is the ex a source of conflict in your home? We’ll teach you how to break the hold she has over your household—for good! Maybe life’s pretty calm right now and you simply want a few pointers on strengthening your stepfamily muscles. You’ll find that here, too.
Going the distance is infinitely easier with friends around who support and understand you. Here? You’re surrounded by them!
Here’s what you’ll find inside when you subscribe:
