Blended Life

Do you ever truly trust the #stepparent in the home?  Do you trust their judgement or do you feel like you need to leave them with a ton of direction?  Do you micromanage your partner when it comes to your kids?!  If so, how’s that working out?
    Let’s talk about gifting your ex during the holidays, birthdays, special occasions, etc.  What about when the gifts are from the “kids” verses when they are from you?  How does either impact your current relationship?  Is it appropriate?
    When the ex is chit chatty (not about the kids or #custody) and wants help in their lives with things like fixing cars, setting up computers, fixing household issues; how much is too much?  How do you shut it down if you find it’s causing problems in your marriage or you begin to feel taken advantage of.  What exactly is to much?!
    When your ex says it's dating and introducing potential life partners to your kids is their business and you (as the other bio parent) should not bother or involve yourself.  How quickly is it appropriate for someone to enter the children's lives and at what level?  What if there’s concerns your children are being exposed to these #relationships very rapidly and it's emotionally confusing; what can you do?!

Our Purpose: Why is talking about blended families and life in general important? Because we believe that we can do better than what statistics say about second marriages lasting, about blending families making it, that’s why! A 70% divorce rate statistic for remarriages with children is simply unacceptable! Spreading life lessons, passing along wisdom gained from experience and bringing to light what is often happily left in the dark to hide, is how we all can learn to be better, to do better the second time around (in a #blendedfamily many lives depend on it). Together we can avoid costly mistakes that will end in the demise of our precious families.   -Blended Life
