The Cinderella Effect

A link to the Wikipedia article on the Cinderella Effect which is shown through a series of studies that Step-Parents treat their Step-Children worse than their own Children and are much more likely to abuse them.

Psychologists try from time to time to dispute the reality of this problem.  One shrink called up step-parents and asked them if they had participated in various abusive behaviors.  Guess what?  They said “no.”  They hadn’t done anything wrong.  There you go, hard core Science at its best.

Why don’t these people try to confront the problem rather than to sweep it under the rug?
