Barbara Toth - Living with bonus children

Patchwork families are a common occurrence these days. Yet much too little is said about the women who take on the role of stepmother in these new family structures. More often than not, they see the addition to the family as an enrichment. But how do they deal with the situation if their partner’s children reject them? Or if they don’t manage to develop feelings for their “bonus children”? What happens when sharing a home with your new partner threatens to founder on issues concerning the children? Because there is no universal script for being a stepmother and each family’s story is unique, this extensive analysis of the situation is supplemented by contributions from women talking about their personal experiences. This is a multifaceted reading book on the topic: unadorned, honest and sanguine.

Nina Horaczek Barbara Toth - Sebastian Kurz

Österreichs neues Wunderkind?

Von den internationalen Medien angesichts seines Alters und seiner steilen politischen Karriere bestaunt, konnte er als Bundesparteiobmann einen großen Wahlsieg erringen. Wer ist dieser junge Mann, der mit dem Versprechen antrat, eine alte, verkrustete Partei in eine moderne ‚Bewegung‘ umzuwandeln? Was sind seine politischen Inhalte und Ziele? Wer steht hinter ihm? Wie haben sich seine Positionen im Laufe seiner politischen Laufbahn geändert? Die Journalistinnen Nina Horaczek und Barbara Tóth beleuchten in diesem Porträt Herkunft, Werdegang und Politik von Sebastian Kurz.
