Reviews - What do customers think about Smart Stepfamily?

The Smart Step Family  Mar 21, 2007
You have to be very religious to read this book and believe that god will solve all your problems. I was not aware that this book was christ based.

 
A step-family must read  Mar 16, 2007
I have personally led step-family groups using this book as the material and have found it very helpful for many of the issues that step-families face today.
 
The Smart Stepfamily  Mar 8, 2007
This book proved great insight into what a step-parent needs to be. The author has done his homework and is knowledgeable on the concerns of step-parenting.
 
Encouraging and Practical Book  Feb 1, 2007
Ron Deal gives very practical advice on how to make step situations work in the face of divided loyalties, marital problems, parenting differences, toxic ex-spouses, etc. With the divorce rate at 74% for second marriages with children, there's obviously unique dynamics in a step family that couples must face along with all the other normal challenges of life and marriage. My family was helped by the explanations on how to gradually move the step parent into authority at various levels, and how to develop realistic expectations for the amount of time it will take for family members to accept each other and ultimately bond as a family.
For people who are considering a second marriage, please don't get discouraged by his "warnings" and occasional negativity. I wish that someone had told me the struggles that I might face before I remarried, and that someone had been straight with me about how hard it really is to blend two families. Thank God that we read the book before we threw in the towel. His recommendations really work, and our family has a lot less tension and pressure since reading The Smart Step Family.
 
Great help for your stepfamily. Wonderful group study book.  Jan 15, 2007
I lead a stepfamily Christian study group. We are using The Smart Stepfamily as a study guide for the group. Everyone is getting a lot out of the book. Mr. Deal really seems to understand the true needs of the stepfamily.

If you take Mr. Deal's advice seriously, you and your stepfamily will be changed for the better. His 7 steps are amazing. All 7 steps are very Biblical and all are essential. They are presented clearly and logically.

I highly recommend the associated overview DVD "7 Steps to Stepfamily Success" which is presented in lecture format by Ron Deal. It quickly discusses each of the 7 steps in the book.

If you are in a stepfamily and are Christian, you need this book!
