The Smart Step-Family

In this book, "blended" families will find practical, realistic solutions to the issues that stepfamilies face. Ron Deal helps remarried and soon-to-be married couples: recognize the unique personality and place of each family member, solve the everyday puzzles of step-parenting and stepchildren relationships, learn communication skills to deal with ex-spouses, how to honor families of origin while developing new traditions, and how to invest the time to grow their stepfamily slowly rather than look for instant results.
