One of the more gratifying things about publishing 25 Ways to go from StepFather to StepDad has been the number of requests to write articles for parents publications. Here’s an article I recent wrote for a website entitled Today’s Parent USA. The article is called Steps to Stepfather Success.
Here’s the press release announcing my new e-book, 25 Ways to go from Stepfather to StepDad:
StepDad knows best. Plymouth, MA resident Joe D’Eramo authors “25 Ways to go from Stepfather to StepDad”.
DATELINE: PLYMOUTH, MA…
With blended families becoming more and more the norm, saying “I do” for many single men means becoming a husband and a father as well. Instantly. Plymouth, Mass.-resident and step-parent of two Joe D’Eramo recently published a new e-book, 25 Ways to go from Stepfather to StepDad, to offers some helpful suggestions for soon-to-be or newly married men who are becoming husbands and fathers for the first time.
“I was 40 when I first got married. I had a pretty close relationship with my six nieces and nephews and got on extremely well with my now wife’s two kids, getting married was a whole new ballgame,” said D’Eramo, a freelance copywriter. “The book talks about some of the things I did to smooth that transition, some of the things I wish I’d done, and some of the things I still work at.”
25 Ways to go from Stepfather to StepDad sells for $9.95 on Amazon as a Kindle book (Kindle also offers a free app that enables customers to read e-books on their PC).
Some of the topics and chapters in 25 Ways to go from Stepfather to StepDad include:
- Following your spouse’s parenting lead.
- Dealing with her ex.
- “No, I’m his step…”
- “Dad’s Day”
- “Grandma/Grandpa? Nana/Papa? Sir or Ma’am?”
- “It’s your turn, Coach.”
- “StepDad! Pick up!”
- “Respect all the parents”
- “In-laws as allies”
- “Hers and ours…Starting your own family”
All of the material covered in the book is based on D’Eramo’s experiences helping to raise his two stepchildren, a task that took on another dimension with the birth of his daughter nearly six years ago.
“She’s just about the age when I met our son. It’s been kind of nice to see the movie from the beginning with this child, but it’s given me an entire new perspective on how my wife raised the older two as a single parent,” said D’Eramo. “With this book, I wanted to let other soon-to-be stepfather or current ones know you are not alone.”
Adds D’Eramo, “Not that I’ve mastered the art of parenting. Far from it. I don’t have a Ph.D. in anything. I’m a just a regular guy who embraced the challenge of being a stepfather and was rewarded with the most fulfilling experience of my life.”
In addition to 25 Ways to go from Stepfather to StepDad, D’Eramo, a Framingham State University graduate, also penned Recipes for the Roommate-Impaired, available on Amazon.com as a paperback.
