Overview

In our divorce-prone real world, stepfamilies have become almost as common as conventional two-parent families with their biological children. But what rules govern the relationship between stepparent and child? Too often, the adults' needs get met, while the kids' get sidelined. Smooth the way for your children by staying keenly sensitive to their perceptions of family, lack of autonomy, craving for parental approval, and ability to sniff out lies. Be aware of potential risk factors (including unresolved problems with the past partner), carefully handle the first meeting between the future stepparent and stepchild, and prepare yourself for potential conflict between stepsisters and brothers. Special attention is given to the part-time stepfamily. You'll find the answers to your most pressing questions—including whether you have to love your new stepchild—and see that you can be one happy family! 160 pages, 7 1/4 X 9 3/4.
