520 "A wise and inspiring guide to creating a happy and
healthy blended family by Mashonda Tifrere with
contributions from her co-parents--Swizz Beatz and his
wife, Grammy-Award winning singer and songwriter Alicia
Keys. In January 2010, founder of ArtLeadHer Mashonda
Tifrere and music producer Swizz Beatz finalized their
divorce. When Swizz married award-winning singer/
songwriter Alicia Keys, a new dynamic was born--three
adults who loved and were deeply committed to raising
Mashonda and Swizz's four-year old son Kasseem. In Blend,
Tifrere draws on the insights they gained from their
journey as well as advice from family therapists,
parenting experts, and other blending families, to provide
an invaluable resource for blended families. Statistics
show that one in three Americans is now a step-parent,
stepchild, step-sibling or other member of a blended
family. The number of first time marriages or romantic
relationships that end in divorce or breakups and the high
percentage of remarriages and new relationships that
involve children demand a unique, life-affirming approach
to processing the end of one relationship and the rebirth
of a new familial dynamic with the well-being of children
at its center. In this book, Tifrere shares intimate
details on how she and her co-parents used communication,
patience and love to create an environment where they were
able to work as a team and all the children involved could
thrive. Blend will inspire a generation of families"--
