StepMom Magazine is a monthly online publication for any woman who dates, lives with or is married to someone with kids.
Each issue is a downloadable, printer-friendly PDF you can enjoy reading anytime, anywhere.
When you subscribe, you’ll also become a member of our online support group. Here, you can talk privately with other stepmoms about the issues that concern you most.
If you’ve ever heard, “You knew he had kids!” or wondered why things are harder than you thought they’d be, StepMom Magazine is for you!
