Editorial Reviews

Library Journal
A combination of works by Dr. Phil, Dr. Spock, and Emily Post, this handbook offers commonsense advice to parents in stepfamilies, focusing throughout on the welfare of the children involved. The authors speak from personal experience Blackstone-Ford married Jupe's ex-husband, and they coparent four children. Their concrete suggestions address many common issues and problems that plague divorced families ranging from late child-support payments to wedding invitation phraseology. The authors have been featured on Oprah and in Woman's Day, which may create demand. In addition, their unique situation ensures that the book stands out in the fairly crowded field. Despite the saccharine use of the prefix bonus when referring to step relationships, this book is highly recommended for all public libraries. Wendy Lee, Brainerd P.L., MN Copyright 2004 Reed Business Information.

    Excellent!

    This book breaks through all the divorce jargon and in everyday terms talks about exactly what you have to do to successfully coparent children after a divorce or separation. It does not favor one parent over the other. I bought one for me and one for my ex and it has helped immensely.
