»Beim Übersetzen dieses Buches war ich geradezu beschämt darüber, mit welcher Treffsicherheit Jesper Juul all die Probleme beschreibt, die ich mit meiner eigenen Patchwork-Familie erlebt habe. Hätte es mir geholfen, wenn ich das Buch schon früher gekannt hätte? Aber ja! Nicht nur, um den allgegenwärtigen Fallgruben auszuweichen, sondern vor allem, um die vielfältigen Chancen zu nutzen, die sich jedem bieten, der sich in einer neuen Familie zurechtfinden muss. Und ich bin Jesper Juul unglaublich dankbar für das Wort ›Bonus-Vater‹ statt ›Stiefvater‹. Das ist ein wirklich guter Begriff, mit dem man sich gerne identifiziert.« Knut Krüger, Übersetzer der Bücher von Jesper Juul
