Very Useful Information
This book has very useful information. If you are a new step parent I would definately recommend reading this book. It covers many of the important issues that someone new to step parenting might not even think of. The chapter on communication is especially important. As a matter of fact, it can be applied to all families, not just step families. This chapter explains the importace of such things as 'family meetings'. The concept of the family meeting helps everybody express their thoughts and ideas in a setting where open conversation is encouraged. Also, discussed in this book is titles for new family members. This is always a touchy subject but the book does offer a few solutions to the problem. There is also great emphasis put on the fact that the husband and wife should focus on their relationship in order to establish a strong foundation. They should make sure that they have some one on one time as well. Also, they must present a united front with rules and disipline. Overall the book 'Blending Families' is a good reference book to have. While it won't fix every problem that could be encountered, it does have some very good ideas to help step parents with some of the bigger issues.
