This revised and expanded edition has updated research and two new chapters with even more real-world advice on topics such as stepsibling relationships and later-life stepfamilies.
Almost every week someone says to me, “Have you written anything on blended families?” My answer is always the same: “No, but I know someone who has.” I then recommend The Smart Stepfamily by Ron Deal. Not everyone can find a counselor who is equipped to deal with the common struggles of stepfamilies. However, when you read The Smart Stepfamily you will find yourself sitting in the offce of a counselor with great experience. No two stepfamilies are alike, but this book offers clear advice on how to solve the common challenges faced by all who enter a second marriage with children. I highly recommended the first edition, and I am even more excited about this new edition. —Gary Chapman
