Are you struggling to find the balance between a new spouse, new stepchildren, and your own kids? Do you and your new spouse not see eye to eye on how to effectively parent your children? Are your children and stepchildren resisting the change in your new family dynamic?
We are here to help your blended family achieve the harmony you are looking for.
When two families become one
Each family has its unique character and dynamic. Every home has their own set of rules and methods of discipline. When two families join to create a blended family, adjustments will be needed.
Inevitably, the family structure will shift, creating space for a new family to join. Children will require time to process and get used to this change. Feeling frustrated and overwhelmed is completely natural – and professional help can provide guidance and support through this period.
Successfully blending two families is a constant balancing act that can be a challenging, yet rewarding experience.
What to expect?
We have extensive experience helping smooth over the transition for blended families. Together, you will learn to communicate with each other, to understand the unique needs of each family dynamic, and create a mutually agreed upon standard that will improve your family life.
We can help you set a baseline for expectations and behaviors for the new blended family. We will work together with both spouses to establish rules and discuss how and when discipline may be provided. Therapy will include:
- Learning to help your children to adjust to the new change in their life
- Gaining the tools necessary to help ease your children into the new family
- Creating a family council, which can help you balance the new family dynamic
- Helping your children establish happy relationships with their step-siblings
