For most of us the answer is yes. But it helps to plan mindfully. 

One definition of a blended family is a family consisting of a couple and their children from this and all previous relationships. Sounds so simple, doesn’t it? However, as 40% of US families know, it can be far more complicated. Not just how we spend Christmas, but day to day complications may arise associated with confusion and hurt feelings in both children and adults. 

This class will focus on raising your awareness about the kinds of internal and external struggles many blended families face and identify approaches that can ease the difficulties for both adults and children.

Solutions Series Library of parenting videos available on demand Handouts

Challenges & Solutions

Our Solution Series Libraries are developed around a specific parenting challenge. Each Series includes a collection of hand-picked, easily digestible (15 min+/-) videos which unlock a key piece of the parenting puzzle.  Read our summary of this Series below then click on each lesson to access the class description, video, handouts, and information about our Expert(s).

Parenting is a demanding job that takes lots of physical and emotional energy. If you are stressed or exhausted it is difficult to be the parent that you want to be – regardless of how much parenting education you seek! Well-being includes your emotional, social, mental and physical health. It depends on feeling like you can cope with daily stressors, having a sense of purpose and generally enjoying life. Parents with a strong sense of wellbeing can manage difficult emotions, make time for supportive relationships and for doing things they enjoy. The purpose of this library is to help you achieve wellbeing by reflecting on your own needs and considering how your personal history may be affecting your parent-child relationships. This series will help you:

  • Recognize symptoms of distress that you may be ignoring and would benefit from attention
  • Consider beliefs and ideas that may be getting in the way of wellbeing and positive parenting
  • Address specific challenges such as getting on the same page with your co-parent and handling stepparenting relationships
