About the Book

For all of our blended families out there, you know all about alternating, compromising and adjusting for holidays and life. Quick reminder to make the best of it, you want a big solid team helping raise your kids and grandkids in a healthy way even if it doesn’t mean you always get your way, don’t be selfish or threatened, support and be loyal to your co parents, never talk badly about co parents to kids (or anyone really), don’t let your kids (or parents, other ex’s, attorneys) play you against each other, if you have an issue or something seems off talk directly with your co parents, welcome your ex’s new loves into the family including them, make room, know there’s enough love for everyone and keep your kids out of the bs (no matter how old they are).
