Library Journal
Combining the advice of numerous therapists, clergy, and stepparents, clinical psychologist Wenck and teacher Hansen provide preventative and healing strategies to help women form healthy relationships between themselves and current or future stepchildren. The authors include everything from building a relationship with each child to defining boundaries as a couple. As both Wenck and Hansen have personally dealt with the trials and joys of stepchildren, their advice rings true. The book would prove valuable to those in the same situation or women about to enter into a blended family relationship.
