Nearly 1800 new stepfamilies are formed every day; over half will end in divorce, usually within five years. Why? According to the authors, the main problems are poor planning, unrealistic expectations, and--most of all--the children (seen as the most divisive force in a blended family). The authors have done seemingly endless research into the "whys" and "hows" of happy stepfamilies and provide solid, heartfelt advice. Included are questionnaires for potential blended families, which are geared toward identifying problems before they become insurmountable. Families are defined as those people we can count on, and the authors give readers reassurances that disastrous stepfamilies can be avoided. Expect this to be helpful and in demand in public libraries.
