Excellent book for women in any type of relationship with a man
Excellent book for women in any type of relationship with a man with children whether it is married, long-term, or just dating.Was this review helpful? Yes NoThank you for your feedback. Report this reviewThank you, this review has been flagged.
I am in my 30's and in a new relationship with a man who has two children, a pre-teen daughter and an older teenage son. This is a first for me. I love children, I was a
camp counselor for pre-teen girls, and I come from a big family, but having a boyfriend with two children is a whole different ball game.
I went to message boards for advice and the women were so bitter and angry, I left very dejected and worried about what I was getting into.
This book has helped me put my own feelings into perspective, is very realistic about the situation, and gives practical advice, however it is NOT doom and gloom.
I feel much better about my relationship and a lot of my worries have been put to ease.
Sometimes it won't be easy, but I feel I have a better understanding of what I am getting myself into.
I'm not sure if I even want to read any other book as I feel this covers all the topics.
Grab your highlighter ladies and enjoy the read!

As my wedding date has come closer, I've had nights filled with panic over becoming a stepmom to three elementary school-age children. Hurrah for 'A Career' Girl's Guide to Becoming a Stepmom' because I finally understood why I was feeling scared. This book validates worries you have and helps you better understand why you are right to worry it gives you helpful tools to doing the best job you can at making this new family work and allows you to laugh at mistakes made along the way. What seems hopeless really isn't¿it's all about staying in there and not taking a personal situation too personal. It's the best book out there for women like me who aren't parents already, but are about to become one instantly. We are not alone and there is help.Was this review helpful?
