Constructive Uncoupling Podcast

a podcast devoted to amicable divorces

Category: Co-Parenting Concerns

Judy Graybill, StepParent Coach

Graybill’s approach to blended stepfamilies starts with the communication about parenting styles and parenting rules between the biological and new stepparent first, then transitions to a family Mission Statement that includes the children.

 

Graybill also discusses how bringing the loss experienced from the divorce has to be acknowledged and dealt with as the biological, newly divorced parent enters another relationship that includes a blended family.
