Every blended family is in the process of forming a new community that will go through very normal and predictable stages. Understanding these stages will help parents and children better cope with the adjustment. Building a Blended Family will help you understand the various stages of community-building and how to manage them. You will also be given specific areas that need to be defined and discussed as well as the obstacles which prevent normal growth and development in the new community. This book will serve as an encouragement during the process of becoming a healthy blended community by making you aware of those things that are absolutely normal in the process.
