In this video, parents from blended families talk about extended family and new family relationships. Children in shared care can benefit from having more grown-ups in their lives that care for them. These new relationships need time and opportunities to grow. Grandparents can be a big help for kids facing changing circumstances. A new baby in a blended family can be a challenge but also an opportunity for everyone to bond.
