WINNER: 2012 HOUSTON WRITERS GUILD NONFICTION

Blended Families, Blendered Style

Married couples with children divorce 40% of the time. In less than three years after that divorce, chances are both mom and dad are remarried, and probably each to someone who has kids of their own. The single most explosive and divisive issue in those marriages? Stepparenting.

Wouldn't it be nice if we all lived in a bubble gum and sugar plum world where, without a ripple on Lake Placid, kids embraced stepparents and appreciated their contributions? Where stepsiblings didn't compete for attention and argue over favorites and fairness? Well, we don't.

So what we need when stepparenting is a good plan. A plan for blending, or blendering if you will, the disparate stepchildren and their parents into a chunky smoothie of stepfamily goodness. How To Screw Up Your Kids helps the parents everyone predicts will fail prove all the naysayers wrong. Through the use of practical human relations principles and the author's own achingly honest and laugh-out-loud funny stories, readers will learn to envision and instill a unique set of family values and culture into their new household, and by God, have fun doing it.

As a grandmother of a blended family I really enjoyed all of the funny stories.  It is so neat to read how two strong parents have worked, planned, and then were able to blend for a happy family unit.

Achingly honest and LOL funny. This book will make you re-evaluate your parenting, whether you parent steps or not.
