Claudette Chenevert, The Stepmom Coach, was interviewed by Taylor Tagg for the Journey To Success BlogTalkRadio show.
Known as "The Stepmom Coach", Claudette provides advice, support, and guidance to those women who are entering the "Instant Family" realm, feeling overwhelmed, misunderstood, and isolated.
Claudette became a Master Certified Stepfamily Foundation Coach when she realized that too many women weren't getting enough help and support. Claudette became a stepmom in 1990. She is also a mother to a grown son and grandmother of two. When she is not speaking to women's groups, or conducting many of her free calls, she offers group and one-on-one coaching to women around the world.
She is a contributing writer for Diva Toolbox and Xpanded Family Magazine and co-authored a book "Celebrating Moms and Motherhood."
There is a proven approach to helping stepfamilies
Creating a stepfamily is a process that grows with time with the right knowledge and tools. A stepfamily is different from the traditional family and therefore needs different approaches into dealing with issues.
I have selected these books or games because I’ve either read or owned them myself, or on recommendation from clients and friends. Some are written with the traditional family in mind but have good information for stepfamilies. Some are my personal favorites because they inspired or helped me on my journey.
These recommendations are suggestions and are by no means meant to replace professional or expert advice. Each person and family is unique and therefore getting help should be sought after with that in mind.
