In this episode of The Intelligent Divorce, Dr. Mark Banschick continues his series on blended families.
Blended families or step families, face challenges above and beyond that of the traditional family. Dr. Banschick addresses issues facing both parents and children.
While changes to family structure require some adjustment time for everyone involved, with the right guidance and realistic expectations, most blended families are able to work out their growing pains and live together successfully. Open communication, positive attitudes, mutual respect, and plenty of love and patience all have an important place in creating a healthy blended family.
