Navigating the Complexities of Blended Families

Navigating the Complexities of Blended Families

In today’s episode, we’re talking about BLENDED FAMILIES, and the challenges and complexities that come with being a co-parent or step-parent within them.


I’m joined by Amy Stone - she’s a Life Coach, Blended Family Expert, and NINJA level communicator - who helps parents and step-parents in blended families to find and create more JOY and HAPPINESS in their lives.



'RAISE YOUR HAND MAMA' SEGMENT:
As usual, I’m also sharing a few thoughts from 2 blended family mamas in the Raise Your Hand Community, so stick around for some motherhood reality! They share their experiences and lived wisdom around:

-the IMPORTANCE of communication
-dynamic shifts throughout different stages
-having mutual respect for new partners/co-parents
-staying united in front of the kids
-navigating that 'lack of control' as the adult/parent JOINING the first family dynamic
-the importance of therapy
