Smart Stepfamily: 7 Steps To A Healthy Family (Revised And Updated)
When stepfamily life gets tough, remaining dedicated to your commitment is a day-to-day decision.
In The Smart Stepfamily, leading expert Ron L. Deal reveals the seven fundamental steps to blended family success and provides practical, realistic solutions to the issues you face as a stepfamily. Whether married or soon-to-be married, you'll discover how to communicate effectively and solve the everyday puzzles of stepchildren relationships. This revised and expanded edition is 50% new and has updated research and two new chapters with more real-world advice on stepsibling relationships and later-life stepfamilies.
• Recognize the unique personality and place of each family member
• Solve the everyday puzzles of step parenting and stepchildren relationships
• Learn communication skills to deal with ex-spouses
• Honor families of origin while developing new traditions
• Invest the time to grow their stepfamily slowly rather than look for instant results
Based on Ron's nationwide stepfamily seminars, this book is also great for small groups, pastors, and counselors.
