Are there any favorite recommended books that members of this forum can suggest -- specifically about making the transition to being a blended family, or becoming a step-parent, or helping a step-child adjust to new family dynamics?<br><br>
Asking for a friend. I would really appreciate any suggestions. <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/smile.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="smile">

<i>The Wife-in-Law Trap</i> by Ann Crytser is out of print now, but in my opinion well worth the effort to track it down used.<br><br>
Based on the personal stories of both first and second wives, it is the <b>best</b> practical advice book that I have ever found on how to navigate the very complex relationship that can occur from post-divorce remarriages.

"One Family, Two Family, New Family" by Lisa Cohn -<br><br>
"Ex- Etiquette For Parents" by Jann Blackstone-Ford and Sharyl Jupe<br><br>
"Helping Your Children Cope with Divorce - The Sandcastles Way"<br>
by Gary Neuman<br><br>
All of these books talk about blending and how to go about it in a positive, healthy way.
