Reviews & Awards

Working together on this book can be an important way to enhance communication between children and their parents and stepparents.
—Emily & John Visher, cofounders, Stepfamily Association of America

With four stepchildren and three natural children, I have been through virtually every problem at least once. This Is Me And My Two Families offers a practical and humorous way to get all the ducks in a row. I wholeheartedly recommend this book to everyone—especially those who are about to take on a second family. It is excellent for the children and adults involved.
—William E. Fromm, secretary, Organization for the Enforcement of Child Support

A very well-developed and insightful piece…a tool for parents and family members, practicing psychologists, social workers, and therapists…The workbook has a wide applicability across different situations including foster care, group care, and residential treatment facilities.
