Good Housekeeping (South Africa) - - YOUR FEEDBACK -

FOOD FAVES I’ve tried out so many recipes from your Spe­cial Recipe Edi­tion. All of them have been a hit, but my fam­ily’s favourite is the Span­ish-chorizo Stew. I’ve been try­ing to make our meals more af­ford­able by bulk­ing up meat with beans, lentils and chick­peas – and this recipe has chick­peas, so I was re­ally pleased. And they’re healthy too! Agnes P, Cape Town FAM­ILY MAT­TERS I bought the Jan/Feb is­sue and was cap­tured by Lisa Edel­stein’s story, Fit­ting a Fam­ily To­gether.

I have a step­daugh­ter whom I’ve raised since she was 13. I spoke to her and ex­plained the sort of be­hav­iour that would make our home happy.

It was the best thing that I could’ve ever done, as she is the best daugh­ter I could’ve wished for. Some­times she even ex­ceeds my bi­o­log­i­cal chil­dren in the way she treats our re­la­tion­ship.

You won’t sur­vive step­par­ent­ing if you’re not cut out for it. Com­mu­ni­ca­tion is key – if you’re not happy, raise your con­cerns. Keep­ing quiet can also have a neg­a­tive ef­fect on your re­la­tion­ship with your hus­band. Linco (real name with­held), Rustenburg
