Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Today more Americans are part of a second-marriage family than a first. Inevitably, these newly blended "stepfamilies" will be confronted by their own special problems and needs. This insightful problem-solving guide offers solid solutions--and includes real-life stories from families who've been through the adjustment process. Written by an award-winning author who specializes in health and family care, the book covers a wide range of issues--emotional, financial, disciplinary, and interpersonal. Naturally, there is no "one-size-fits-all" solution for second-marriage families. Each is unique, with its own composition, personalities, and problems. But with patience and understanding, this new family can work, live, and eventually love--together. Includes special sections on:

* Family communication

* Former spouses

* Grandparents and step-grandparents

* Juggling households

* Commuting children

* Discipline

* School issues

* Family customs and rituals

* Religious differences

* Reducing stress

* Adult time

* Money issues

* Holiday planning

* Vacations

* Curfews and other rules

Synopsis:

Real-life stories and solid solutions highlight this insightful guide to blending stepfamilies in America today..
