Step Parenting

About This Workshop

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.  

After this workshop, you will be able to:

  • Raise your awareness about the kinds of internal and external struggles many blended families face.
  • Identify approaches that can ease the difficulties for both adults and children.
