The Tools You Need to Be a Great Stepdad

· Wisdom for handling tricky issues such as discipline, dealing with your wife's ex, and hugging your stepdaughter

Two chapters for your wife to read and tips for her throughout the book will help the two of you work as a team. This is the survival guide that every stepfather needs to succeed. --This text refers to the paperback edition.
