It has been estimated that 33 percent of all US children will likely live in a stepfamily before age eighteen.
"I write to you, stepmom, stepdad, stepchild, adult stepchild, and step-grandparent, with the hope that I can share advice and stories of real families that will provide helpful guidelines for your blending family journey. I want to identify pitfalls for you to avoid, give you directions for success, and provide support to encourage you."
With this is mind, Max Price, PhD, has compiled a practical, easy-reading, collection of stories about and by stepmoms, stepdads, stepchildren, and a step-grandmother, along with mental health professionals, in his book, Blending Families: The Honeymoon Comes Later.
Blending two families is a challenging journey, not a simple walk in the park, and Max Price has drawn together contributors who share their real-life journeys and provide blending families relevant advice. So if you're about to step into the trenches of stepfamily living or if you've been dealing with an ongoing problem in your blended home, Max Price's Blending Families is the perfect guide for any stepfamily issue.
