Guides to helping young children deal with difficult issues
This book helps young children aged 7+ find out about and understand life in a stepfamily.
When a child's parent remarries, that child gains a new parent, and often, new siblings. This can be great, but it can also come with its own unique set of challenges. This informative book is designed to help readers navigate and learn from these challenges. Relatable stories are presented through the use of colourful illustrations and accessible text. This book is an excellent resource for readers who have recently become or are currently preparing to become part of a new stepfamily.
It features seven stories from children who have a range of stepfamily issues from a girl who doesn't want to share to a boy who is worried because he likes his stepdad more than his 'real' dad. The end of the book features a short playscript to act out and discuss.
In this series case studies combine with sensible, practical advice to help children find out what to do in difficult situations.
