Editorial Reviews

From the Publisher
"A really interesting walkthrough; a ten-step plan that’s well thought-out and experience-based...a giant step in resolving this problem"- Dr. Phil McGraw, on "The Dr. Phil Show" / December 1, 2009 “Bitch is a worthy, energetic workbook . . . Chatty and funny, it provides useful ideas (e.g., make small offerings) and sound how-to (e.g., greet each other when the kids swap houses).” - Library Journal"These straight-shooting, truth-talking, soul-baring women have their priorities right: When mom and stepmom are on the same page everyone wins, most especially the kids! If more parents could do as authors Jennifer and Carol have done, our courts would be far emptier, our kids would be far healthier and and all of our futures would be brighter!"- Benjamin D. Garber, Ph.D., www.healthyparent.com, author of Keeping Kids Out Of The Middle

Read an Excerpt

From the IntroductionIt’s a nasty word, bitch. It’s one thing if you’re standing up in the face of injustice to do the right thing—who cares if anyone thinks you’re a bitch? But being thought of as bitch in general is another thing altogether. No one wants that. And yet, here’s the setup between ex-wife and stepmother: The other woman, no matter which side you start from, is automatically a bitch. . . . And isn’t it irritating to know the other side is almost certainly calling you a bitch?! . . . We’ve figured out a way to do it otherwise. We don’t know everything, but we do know a few things. And we’d like to tell you about them.
