Blending Families: A Guide for Parents, Stepparents, and Everyone Building a Successful New Family
by Elaine Fantle Shimberg
While they may never be the Brady Bunch, newly blended “stepfamilies” do not have to be a war zone when their own unique problems and special needs are considered..
Newly blended “stepfamilies” have their own unique problems and special needs. Blending families is not a rerun of the Brady Bunch but it does not have to be a war zone either. With patience and understanding, the new family works, lives, and hopefully eventually loves as a blended family rather than as two or three separate groups–his, hers, ours.
Real-life stories from families who’ve been "there and done that" assist the book in covering emotional, financial, disciplinary, and interpersonal conflicts and issues. The issues are covered in a straightforward manner without difficult-to-understand theory.
