Being a parent is one of the most beautiful gifts one can embrace. However, it does not come without its challenges. I work to embolden you with a greater understanding of the family system, which leads to some practical strategies for a healthier family structure.
Our world is proving to show that blended and step-families are becoming more common than ever since many remarriages include children from previous relationships. Things rarely progress smoothly when families "blend". Children might resist changes, while you as a parent grow frustrated when your new family doesn't function in the way you had hoped. Blending families requires adjustment for everyone involved, and I can help your new family work through the growing pains. Although things might seem strained initially, with open communication, mutual respect, and plenty of love and patience, you can develop a close bond with your new stepchildren and form an affectionate and buoyant blended family.
As children grow into adulthood, families have a paradigm shift . Our kids enter the next phase of lives as they create their own families. When our families grow, it’s up to us to navigate new and different relationships, and to embrace the challenge of recreating and maintaining close adult relationships ... while allowing freedom for individuality.
