It is also a rich account of their own voyage thru a complicated journey as a blended family with an empathetic take on the struggles both single parents and couples face in their daily lives raising children. Without being patronizing, they manage to be very clear about the obstacles to wellness families face while sharing many a story of their own with the reader, while referring to their own youth and families-of-origin, which impacted their development as indidviuals, as a couple and as parents along the way.
I would recommend this book to all families. In addition, it should be on the bookshelf of any social service agency including adoption agencies, therapists and educators. Step-parents and those who struggle with adolescent children would benefit from this book as well as people who plan to have children some day, as it really gives you a concise analysis of the daily work of love parenting actually is.
As Rev. Run states, parenting does not stop once your children turn eighteen, it is an ongoing process.Read more ›
