Any parent who has helped to raise stepchildren knows that it may very well be the single greatest challenge of getting remarried. It's hard to know exactly how to handle the uncomfortable, unpredictable, and sometimes seemingly unmanageable situations that accompany the inauspicious title of stepparent. Finally, an easygoing handbook for in-the-dark stepparents is here in StepWise�the no-nonsense, no-psychobabble, down-to-earth, practical, and funny guide to dealing with stepchildren in a friendly, sensible, sometimes funny way. Coauthors James Dale and his stepdaughter, Alex Schapiro, offer their insights in a unique, bite-sized format. One of the most important lessons of their experience is that you'll need your sense of humor, so they tackle this serious subject with levity. They realize raising stepchildren isn't world peace. It just sometimes seems as hard to achieve.----------------
