Publisher's Summary

From best-selling author, speaker, and therapist Ron Deal, one of the most widely heard and viewed experts on blended families in the country.

Part of Ron's Smart Stepfamily series of books (over 250,000 copies sold) including The Smart Stepmom, The Smart Stepdad, Dating and the Single Parent, The Smart Stepfamily Marriage, Daily Encouragement for the Smart Stepfamily, and The Smart Stepfamily Guide to Financial Planning.

Single parents who are dating or want to begin a dating relationship wonder: How will dating affect my children and my parenting? They probably have figured out that "dating in a crowd" is complicated. Now they're looking for help. Ron Deal, who has counseled single parents and remarried couples for many years, helps single parents - as well as those who date them - navigate the potential pitfalls involved. He gives perspective on when a relationship may be harmful to the children as well as how it can be a blessing to all. Always at the forefront is the goal of strengthening families.

PLEASE NOTE: When you purchase this title, the accompanying PDF will be available in your Audible Library along with the audio.

Hopelessness

If you want to be depressed and hear how you can never have as good of a family as you could have had if your husband had not left and how terrible a second family will be, by all means, read this.

Speaks Volumes

Reading this opened my eyes to a few things I wasn't aware of as well as emphasized a few in terms of needing not only to be in love with each other, but for the children to be able to have a healthy relationship with a step-parent in their life as well. I know there's a lot to learn and to build on if this is the path I end up taking, but this knowledge was good not just in my pursuit of a beautiful God serving woman (a mother and role model of a female toddler), but this is also good for me in the chance (which I hope doesn't come to this) that things don't ever pick up off the floor and we remain friends, and I find a none-mother single woman or just stay single. This book is good not just for the single parent (or a guardian like myself), but for all people dating or not dating. The information is vital for all.

Great insight and Christian values!

I would highly recommend this book to any single Christian parent. It provides very authentic advice backed by Christian values and surfaced a lot of things that I had never considered. Well done!

A good book to listen to

This book covers good points but most of them based on religion and Christianity. If you are not religious you might not enjoy it that much!
