you've read the book, STEPWIVES, and its helped you understand your
stepwife better, improved your relationship with your stepwife, or just
given you the hope that your situation can improve, we'd love to hear from
CoMamas are great! They really helped facilitate our attempts
to co-parent my husband's children with their mother. We try
to walk in her shoes, give the benefit of the doubt and be respectful
of the girls' mother in front of them. Recently, we have had
2 family meetings, which so far have reaped only positive results
in our minds when it comes to the girls' education and various
studies. Having the opportunity to say what's on my mind during
the counseling session to my husband's ex is something I hadn't
done before. Thanks Louise & Lynne!"

"I seized the opportunity to talk with my CoMama at Saturday's
baseball game. It went so well and I feel so much better having
more information about what is happening in my stepdaughter's
life in her other home. I'm really very aware right now of how
the lack of information and communication makes things more
difficult. It's clearly the fears that keep the "what you don't
know can't hurt you" in place. Information is empowering and
my stepwife was great. I feel so fortunate. She appreciated
my offer to help when my stepdaughter was with me. She shared
her struggles with her which are all basically the same issues
as we have here. She shared that consistency between the houses
in regard to rules and discipline will be forefront soon and
I feel I laid a foundation of support and an openness for the
days, months, and years ahead. My husband wasn't a part of our
conversation on Saturday but he plans to have his own discussion
with her soon. Thank you for your support in every way. You
three always help me to find the courage to follow through with
what I know is right! "
Signed, Forever grateful.
"The CoMamas gave me the hope and help that I was searching
for. I am forever grateful for their invaluable support and
for sharing the tools I needed to step confidently into my important
new role as a Step Mother. It's wonderful to know I am not alone."

"Dr. Krausz has helped us tremendously to work out a lot of
the rough spots to where my STEPWIFE and I now have a great

"After I got off the phone with you last week, I sat with tears
streaming down my face thanking God I found your website."

I'm very impressed with the
presentation of a difficult subject, the ease with which it
reads, and the creativity of Lynne, Louise, and Marjorie.
Even though I'll never be a stepwife under the circumstances
covered in the book (stepwife is deceased), I am a
stepmother and step grandmother and there is much good
psychology in general that can be applied to other
situations. They did a wonderful job.
