My Extra Mom By Gina Grad Helps Stepmothers
Gina Grad, a new stepmom/”extra mom” and Los Angeles broadcaster, has published her first children’s book, My Extra Mom By Gina Grad Helps Stepmothers . It aims to help families adjust to the “blending” process by providing helpful insights and advice for stepparenting. The book focuses on helping young children who are being introduced to a new parent or stepparent feel safe and confident.
Grad recognized the significance of creatively educating people about what it truly means to be a stepmom—being a person who joins “a family already in progress” and adding to the joy, protection, and love that already exist—with an estimated 133.6 million Americans who are in a step-relationship and limited resources for children.
My Extra Mom aims to dispel the myth of the “Evil Stepmother” and provides a positive outlook on the characteristics of a healthy “modern family.” Grad was inspired to write a children’s book by her own experiences as a stepmother. The book reassures parents and children that stepparents provide stability and security in addition to what primary parents already provide.
The advantages of having a caring and loving extra adult in a child’s life are emphasized in this recently published children’s book. It also provides suggestions, fun challenges, and games to help stepmoms and stepchildren bond.
For non-nuclear families, My Extra Mom serves as a reminder that there is ample community and extra love. This innovative yet simple children’s book emphasizes the importance of creating a positive environment for all family members to thrive and serves as a useful resource for any family going through the “blending” process.
