Blended Families - Marriage

Families come in many forms, with many different dynamics. The traditional idea of a family, for many, is changing into a more modern idea of what brings people together. The 2011 Canadian Census on families and living arrangements found that step-families account for about 1 in 8 coupled families with children. A blended family occurs when at least one, or both partners in a marriage already have children from a previous relationship, plus those two partners also have at least one child together. Whatever the arrangement, the love and reward of a blended family can be wonderful, but it can also present challenges. Are you looking for advice on how to be better accepted by your step-child/children? Are you and your partner arguing over differing parenting styles - are they disciplining your child differently than you do? Are you and your spouse considering a child together, but you aren’t sure how it will affect your children? Perhaps your children are having trouble accepting a new baby into the family or questioning their role now that a new child has arrived. Whatever your question or concern, we have the experts and resources you need to help navigate the potential challenges of a blended family. You are not alone. Connect with others who may be going through the same thing, find professional help and resources near you. The Kinjunxion community is here to help.
