About blended families and stepfamilies
Blended families and stepfamilies can mean new and rich relationships. When you put time, effort and understanding into these relationships, they’ll grow and thrive.
Blended families can have challenges too. Some of these challenges might include helping children handle their feelings about their changing family situation. They might also include practical challenges like setting up new rules and responsibilities.
Blended families and stepfamilies come in many shapes and sizes. It’s good to think about what your blended family or stepfamily might look like and what might work for you.
In this webinar, we’ll talk about:
- blended families and stepfamilies
- children’s feelings and behaviour in blended families
- roles and responsibilities in blended families
- rules and boundaries in blended families
- positive relationships in blended families.
In the webinar, you’ll be able to ask questions, share experiences, and hear other parents’ experiences and ideas.
This webinar is about parenting after re-partnering. If you’re in a relationship and you or your partner bring children from previous relationships, this webinar is suitable for you.
If you register for the webinar, we’ll send you a link to the recording, even if you can’t make it on the night.
