Now that more than 60% of American families are divorced, re-partnered or single parent households, the rules for running the house have changed.
Would you like to create a well-run family team where you are clearly the leader?

Do you long for a homelife where children feel loved and cared for and you feel respected and in control?
FAMILY RULES not only gives you the tools you need to create a happy well-run family but the parenting skills to develop character, self-discipline, and self-esteem in children. Easy to institute and easy to follow, FAMILY RULES is the best way to bring stability and tranquility to your home.

Living in Step

By: Jeannette Lofas Ph. D., LCSW
The first book ever written to look at the stepfamily from all points of view.  It depicts  the point of view of each member. There are 60 million stepparents in the United States today. Prior to LIVING IN STEP,no book had been written that defines the problems and offers advice on conflicts  endemic to each member of the stepfamily. How does a stepparent deal with natural  hostility encountered from the stepchildren? Who comes first?By identifying the roots of the problems LIVING IN STEP helps step-people achieve  family harmony they often did not think possible.   

He's Ok, She's Ok

HE’S OK SHE’S OK, Honoring the Differences Between Men and Women.
By Jeannette Lofas and Joan McMillian
Is an unbiased, supportive and well-documented, well-researched and fun-book about the confounding, delightful and daunting differences between men and women. It depicts the causes of conflict and invites men and women to know and honor their differences. It focuses on: mental, emotional, ways of being, feeling, seeing, and saying that takes place in 80% of men and women.
Research from around the world is cited. We delineate, humorously depict, and draw no conclusions.  The differences are made clear with pictures, descriptive columns and well-explained text.  He’s OK, SHE” OK is  “must have” for today’s men and women.
P.S. We have found that in our work with couples once we stabilize the initial stepfamily conflict, the issue unclear concepts  gender differences and how they drive, set at odds the couple  becomes an issue.  This holds true for over half of the couples in our practice.
