Forming a blended family can be both a rewarding and challenging process. Children of all ages tend to adjust to blended families in different ways. The physical and emotional needs will vary depending on the age of the child(ren). Children may struggle with adjusting to their new roles within the family dynamic, accepting the new parent, changes in traditions, and changes in family relationships.
Parents may also face difficulties with blended families as there may be differences in parenting, discipline, lifestyles, and house guidelines. Step-parents sometimes face struggles bonding with their new blended family as well.
Our team of therapist will help guide you and your family through the transitional process in order to create positive relationships within the blended family systems. Establishing trust in a loving nonjudgmental environment is key to creating a strong cohesive blended family. We look forward to supporting you and your family through this rewarding process.
