We need to put together a resource sticky for this forum.

Do you have any books you would recommend, groups/websites that are excellent or threads that really stood out as helpful?

Post things you would recommend here and I will compile it into one sticky for the forum.

Thank you!

Not all those who wander are lost

Can't think of much, but one book we love (I think aricha recommended it here at some point), is Todd Parr's "The Family Book." It's just got descriptions of all types of families, including ones with two moms or stepparents, etc. For younger kids. He also has one called "It's OK to be Different" that may touch on family issues as well.
