Editorial Reviews

The Lamplighter
Maxine has a blended family herself and has added many stories from her counseling background to illustrate each chapter. The book is divided into two major sections: "What the Children Have to Say" and "What the Experts Have to Say." Each chapter in the "What the Children Have to Say" section contains 'Joy Builders', 'Thoughts for Today', 'Let's Look at This Family', 'Things We Can Do Now' and 'If I Could Tell My Parents Something It Would Be' . . . . No subject is too hard to cover, serious abuse, hatred, anger and the example spare no details. I found the suggestions to be excellent. The second section when the Experts speak is written by well known names like Patricia Rushford and H. Norman Wright. It would be helpful to any blended family with children from preschool to adulthood. I recommend this title.
