Hello,

My SIL is engaged (rather suddenly) to a man with three children who are young adults. I would love to recommend a book to her. I would appreciate your suggestions.


Thanks.

I like Step-Parenting by Jeannette Lofas

My DSC are 20, 18, 15 and 12 and the older ones have been wonderful, we have been married 2 years, the younger one has has the hardest time adjusting. Hope it works for your SIL. I think a lot depends on the other parent of the children too and how they are (not good in our case and guess which child lives there). Good Luck to her!

Hey I just checked a really FUNNY but helpful step-mom book from the library, called:

The Single Girl's Guide to marrying a man, his kids and his ex wife.
Becoming a step-mother with humor and grace

I mean it even made me laugh about the X! Might be more funny if you have been there done that, but its great!
