Today we look at the time, energy, and relationship challenges and triumphs when blending two parents and one or two sets of children into one new family. On the relationship front you face complexities around bonds with your children…yours, mine and ours along with co parenting relationships and challenges on both sides. Add to that differing financial, educational and religious beliefs and behaviors…and that’s just scratching the surface.
If you’re considering a blended family, listen closely as Mike and Kim have been through or coached others through just about everything. It is an eye opening, multi-tiered conversation about the good, bad, beautiful and ugly of blended families!
