These Hard Times
The recent economic downturn is hitting young adults hard. Because we care, we suffer when they suffer.

Just when our youngest family members are working to launch their own lives, they face fewer jobs, higher costs of living and education, and enormous economic uncertainty. And, as much as we'd like to help, we face our own uncertainty--many of us are losing jobs, struggling to meet our commitments, and seeing our retirement savings evaporate.

When a young adult stepchild stalls, it can be difficult for parents and stepparents to know what to do and how to lend a hand.

Evil Stepmom would like to hear about the challenges you and your stepfamily are facing, how you're coping, and what you're thinking about your situation.

As always, your identity will be protected for your privacy and the privacy of your family.
