Blended Life

 When the new “girlfriend” of your ex comes in like a wrecking ball and changes everything about your co-parenting with her influence and boundaries, how should you handle it? How to deal when your kids are all over her social media and you’ve never even met her yet?! How to process your ex forging a relationship with your estranged father between him and your children? When you hear from your kids they have been seeing “grandpa” at Dad’s and you haven’t had any relationship with him for YEARS! How to deal with “Mommy/Daddy” said type of stuff with the kids?  When your step kids are coming home from their other house and it’s always what “Mommy said or Mommy says”; do you correct incorrect information?, do you ban it?, do you ignore it?, do you set boundaries? If it’s happening in one home, you know it’s also happening in the other home with “Daddy says”.  How might you address this if you don’t want to hear it, but also don’t want the kids making up stuff about your home to their other parent?  Marriage and the name change; do it or not?  Use your maiden name as part of the last name for the sake of the kids? Does changing your name make you feel separated even further from you children? Is it offensive to want to keep your shared name with your children? What issues may arise when you make the decision to have a different last name than your children?

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
