The Insider/Outsider Challenge: Being joined by stepfamily psychotherapist, June Taylor was such a treat. She works with stepfamilies on a regular basis so she was able to laser focus on issues that face us stepmoms. One of the most interesting subjects she brought to my attention was the existence of this insider/outsider effect for stepmoms. When she first brought it up I had no idea what she was referring to but as she explained it I realized it perfectly captured a feeling I’ve experienced since day one as a stepmom. Check out our conversation about this phenomenon and see if you have experienced it. Not only does she explain the challenge but she also provides solutions which is great. Personally, I really benefited from this particular segment.
