Blended Families

Now that you are a blended family, how will you make it work?

Blending families means change.

For the parents it’s a hope for a new future, a new family life.

For children though, it is a total upheaval of their life.

  • The child's old family is gone, and they have not one, but 2 new families.
  • They have feelings of abandonment, loss and hurt.
  • Parents struggle with discipline and parenting issues.

Most step parents come into a blended family thinking that because they are already a parent what could be hard about step parenting.

Actually most of us come into a step situation wearing love tinted glasses that obscure most of the “other” things that come with the relationship… including the children.

In most relationships there is a honeymoon period, a period of grace where everyone and everything seems to be great.

Then it hits. 

The children begin to act up.

They begin to do things that you wouldn’t tolerate with your own children and your spouse is not dealing with it.

Your spouse seems to ignore it or make up excuses for their child:

- He really did not mean it.

- You’re being too tough on her

-  Lighten up, he’s just a child

-  She would never do that

-  I know but she’s only here for the weekend and I want it to be fun

 

F.U.S.E. Family Programs focus on YOU the parents.

You learn the COR Framework that helps you increase your coping skills and resiliency.

You learn how to model and teach the COR Framework to your children so they can develop their coping skills amidst all the changes taking place in their life.

Best of all, the COR Framework opens the door to more effective communication within your Blended Family.
