Stepchildren -- Counseling of;
The structure of the family is constantly changing. Cherlin and Furstenberg (1983) predicted that by the year 2000, families of remarriages will be one of the types of families that dominate the personal lives of most Americans. A "remarried family" involves a married couple with the husband, the wife, or both in a second or subsequent marriage. Children under 18 in the home who were born before the remarriage occurred are considered stepchildren in the constituted stepfamily (Glick, 1988). Glick also reported that stepfamilies currently represent 17.4% of households with children under age 18 (Sims & Crosbie-Burnett, 1989).
