Stepchildren: A National Study
Based on the findings of the National Child Development Study, a long-term research project conducted by the National Children's Bureau into the development of all children, this publication offered the first full picture of the complexities of the step-relationship. Stepchildren is a unique national study of the lives and development of the increasing number of children who live with a stepparent. It looks at all major aspects of their experience - including social background, family relationships and educational development - and examines variations and similarities between children growing up in different types of family groups.
