The topic I choose to write about is based on teens having step-parents’, and how does it affect them. I was interested in researching this topic because many friends, and family around me suffer similar situations. I know when it comes to having step parents age difference really matters on how it affects the relationship. I wonder, if most of the effects are caused by jealousy of the stepchild or the step-parent? On the other hand it could be both. Another thing that comes to mind is, How does parents try to make it easier for their child/children?
