Stepfamilies are those families with children that are often created by the marriage or union of an immediate parent to another non-biological parent or person.
Stepfamilies are rarely portrayed in the media. Stepchildren seldom see media representations of stepchildren coping with family issues: therefore these child viewers have few role models similar to themselves in which to learn from.
Research has established that children often imitate and can relate to media characters similar to themselves. In addition, similar characters are often recalled by child viewers. Since few stepfamilies are represented in the media, this often leaves stepchildren at a disadvantage.
The Stepducks mission is to Encourage all people to recognize that there may be no separation of family and education. Through Stepducks we promote the importance of family inclusion in all levels of education in a very entertaining way. “You’ll swear you know these kids.” Through entertainment, the Stepducks offers a fresh and public view of the often underrepresented types of families—stepfamilies.
