Jessica's Two Familes Helping Children Learn to Cope with Blended Households by Lynne Hugo

Like so many children from divorced families, Jessica finds herself dealing with the pressures and anger that come when both her mother and father remarry and she has two whole new families to live with, each with different rules. She feels angry because nothing is like how it was before. Her new step-parents set down rules that feel unfair, and her new step-siblings don't seem to want her around. Jessica feels lonely because her mother spends time with her new husband, Mike, and her father is busy with two additional children to raise. With honesty and compassion, Jessica's Two Families teaches children that it is okay to be upset about adjusting to new families. It urges them to share their hurt feelings with their parents and counselors so that everyone can learn how to make the good parts of a new extended family better. Children learn that functioning as blended family will take time, but their efforts will be rewarded. Two new families means twice the love!
