Blending Families: Merging Households with Kids 8-18 (Paperback)
So many families are considered blended these days, and yet many parenting books don't consider the roles and responsibilities of step-parents and step-parenting. While this book looks at the common parenting issues, it pays special attention to the needs of a new marriage and the centrality of that relationship in making the family unit work.
