It takes more effort and COURAGE to be a step parent than a parent. Step parenting can cause feelings of confusion, resentment, and of being overwhelmed, discounted and ineffective.

Are you someone who:
  • wants to understand and enjoy the children?
  • desires to form a lasting and fulfilling blended family?
  • wants to be an effective step parent, avoiding the many common pitfalls?
  • wants to maintain a close couple relationship, while giving the children what they need?
  • wants to be aware of the issues before they arise?

Anticipating the issues and facing and dealing with current issues will help create a strong and rewarding stepfamily.

When you discover you are not alone, that your feelings and reactions are normal, you will be more effective as a step parent.
