A stepfamily is a ready-made family from the beginning.  Family members must learn to live together.  Sometimes this is not an easy process which can take a lot of time.  There are many stepping stones to creating a successful stepfamily.  Numerous resources have been created for helping stepfamilies adjust to the very normal transitions they have to make for healthy family living.    Stepping Stones for Stepfamilies  include a six-lesson home study course, a teaching guide with video/DVD and participant fact sheets, and a comprehensive training manual for community family life educators.  Go to the following link to access or order these materials:
