Jealousy is a normal human emotion, but sometimes it can interfere with our relationships. It is very common in the blended family to struggle with feelings of jealousy when it comes to your partner's ex spouse or their children. Some common types of jealousy blended families face are

  • jealousy of spouse and their relationship with their children
  • jealousy of spouse and the time they spend with their children
  • jealousy of spouse life outside of the family, including friends and work
  • overall jealousy of spouse regarding trust

In this episode I break those down for you in hopes to help you overcome them.

Dealing with conflict is a life skill that has less to do with resolving the problem, and more to do with how we handle it. Sometimes we can fix things, but when we can’t, we need to know how to cope and live our life. We can’t control others, only ourselves and how we deal with things. Blended families can be full of conflict, especially when dealing with exes. Learn some ways to manage conflict  in this episode.

www.blendedfamilypodcast.com

Setting proper boundaries is essential in the blended family home. Everyone needs to know what is acceptable and what is not in order to maintain some kind of peace in the home. Some tips on setting boundaries include doing so from the beginning, holding family meetings, and practicing good communication.

If you’re wondering who needs boundaries, well everyone. Though you will find the most necessary boundaries are set with the children, the ex spouses, and the in laws (or ex in laws).  Each of those types require different types of boundaries, and they are unique to your family. The happiness of the family and especially the children lies in practicing this boundary setting often!

Blended families require a lot of balance. Many parents struggle because they don’t know which should come first, their relationship with their partner, or their children. There are different factors you can look at, but ultimately, the attention you spend both on your partner and your kids needs to be carefully managed.

She has not stopped fighting for the rights of alienated parents since. Wendy’s passions and strengths include giving educational presentations to the public and professionals, giving TV and radio interviews, giving support to targeted and alienated parents as well as conference and event planning.  Whether it’s experts or advocates or families, one of Wendy’s gifts is bringing people together for awareness, education and support.

She joins us for a second time to discuss her personal story, as well as what we can all do to help bring awareness to parental alienation.

Rank #16: Episode 14-Bonding Part 1-Stepparent and Stepchild

Podcast cover
Read more

melissa@blendedfamilypodcast.com

www.blendedfamilypodcast.com

It is so important to bond with your stepchildren.  Your stepchildren will always be a part of your partners life, therefore will be a part of yours.  We are all built with an innate quality to love and cherish our children unconditionally.  We don’t have the same built in feelings about stepchildren.  The relationship with our stepchildren needs work to grow.  

Age plays a big role in how we bond with stepchildren.  

Elementary school kids are easiest to adapt to their parents new partner.  At this age, children are less judgemental and more willing to give and receive love.  The best ways to bond with children this age are to do a lot of talking and listening.  Discipline is also essential at this age to help establish respect and boundaries.  Other ideas are to play together, take part in their daily rituals, or bake something in the kitchen.  Love, interest, and attention is what they need to help form a bond.

Pre teens and teenagers are an entirely different situation when it comes to establishing bonds.  They can hardly bond with their own biological parents at this age.  If they are being difficult, you can’t force a bond.  What you can do is gently attempt to connect. Try to engage or start lighthearted conversations, make them a favorite meal, and take an interest in their life.  Don’t be discouraged by a moody or angry teenager.  They will grow up, and most likely will appreciate your previous efforts.

Adult children who are over 18 can be harder to bond with, as they will be moved on and involved in their own lives at this point.  Honor the relationship they have formed with your partner over the years.  You can invite them over for holidays and dinners to get opportunities to get to know them better.  

If everything you try does not result in a successful stepparent and stepchild relationship, your relationship with your partner doesn’t need to suffer.  Everyone in the home should always maintain a level of respect towards one another as a rule.  Therapy is a useful tool, and sometimes time makes all the difference.  Never give up on trying to bond as a family unit, and working on the special bond between a stepparent and stepchild.

There are many roles we play in our blended families, and sometimes we can feel unappreciated for all that we do. There are five main categories or roles that we feel unappreciated in.

  1. Stepparent

  2. Parent

  3. Partner

  4. Child

  5. New partner (unappreciated by partner’s ex)

Proper communication can help, by expressing to your family what your needs are. Most of us have these feelings at one point or another.

Many children suffer from low self esteem. As parents, it is our job to recognize these signs, and help our kids develop a better sense of self worth. My ten ways to help are

  9. Teach them about mistakes
  10. Show unconditional love

And a few things NOT to do are

  • Do NOT do everything for them
  • Do NOT compare them to others
  • Do NOT name call

Gerardo Campbell is a stepfather veteran of 16+ years. Back in 1995, there were little, if any, resources, information or coaching available for stepfathers. So he became a stepfather equipped with the very best intentions combined with his own perceptions, expectations and very little outside preparation. Reflecting back he understands why his marriage ended in divorce. Now, through his website, he wants to share with you his experience, his lessons learned, and the lessons learned from others.

Donna Sager Cowan, Children's Book Author!

Podcast cover
Read more

With many children in today’s society are currently navigating through emotional challenges, learning and attention issues, or family stressors/pressures on the home front, we need to think more carefully about different ways to support children’s motivation and engagement, both in the classroom and at home. Joining us today on this episode of  The Blended Family Podcast to share how to assist your child in developing his/her sense of worthiness is Donna Sager Cowan, the creator of The Superhero School Series and the author of the forthcoming children’s book, With The Curiosity Of A Cat (book #2 in the series). As the youngest child in a large family, Donna felt lost in the crowd. She entertained herself by making up stories and friends to play with. By age 5, Donna had taught herself to read, and that began her imaginative journey to dreamy castles with princes and fairy godmothers.  Donna is a grandmother, random fact-finder, and encourager. And yes, she believes she’s a superhero. She resides in California with her family and four cats. In this interview you will hear:

  • Her personal story
  • Why going back to school can be very challenging for kids
  • What brought her to this line of work and why a superhero school series. 
  • Why blended families can affect children and their self worth
  • The book, With the courage of a mouse. 
  • What kids today struggle with, especially with school and social media
  • How do you know if your child feels worthy or not? 
  • How can we help our children make sure they have a good view of self
  • How can you help a child who suffers from low identity, can you reverse this?
  • What's next for Donna-the future of the book series 
  • And much more!

Knowing We’re Not Alone!

Melissa! Your podcast has given me so much hope in the pure fact that my blended family, and the struggles that come along with that, are not alone. To hear from families that go through the daily grind to do what it takes to “grow together” is priceless! I feel as though I am sitting down with friends and learning about their learned wisdom, strengths and knowledge of what it took for them to make their family the very best that it can be. Super encouraging, thank you so much!

Thankful for this Podcast!
