It’s time to rewrite the stories of our blended families in Africa. There can be nothing quite as daunting as becoming a step-parent. More so, for women who have to face the negative stereotypes associated with the “wicked stepmother” narrative so deeply entrenched in culture and folklore. Yet more women find themselves stepping into this role in our modern society due to high divorce and remarriage rates. THRIVING AS A STEPMOTHER is a book that explores how women can equip themselves for success and thrive in the role of a stepmother by providing solid, tried, and tested principles gathered from a rich and diverse study in building successfully blended families. Barbra is the founder of Blended Families Forum an organization that supports families in blended families.
