There are many numerous challenges in blending families. Some of the more common ones include, step-parenting, disciplining children, differing styles of parenting and expectations, and dealing with the ex-spouse. Despite these challenges, a blended family CAN be a happy home! In counselling for blended families, our goal is to help make the transition as smooth as possible, by addressing the many issues faced by step-family members. We will help you find ways to openly discuss what is happening beneath the surface, resolve confusion, and how to reach an agreement as a family. As well, you will learn how to develop better structure to allow your kids more stability and security. In time, counselling will help you find how to gradually and appropriately strengthen the emotional bonds between family members and how to balance your different roles, such as parent or spouse, and the needs of everyone that depend on you.
