When two families become one
Each family has its unique character and dynamic. Every home has their own set of rules and methods of discipline. When two families join to create a blended family, adjustments will be needed.
Inevitably, the family structure will shift, creating space for a new family to join. The children will require time to process and get used to the change. Feeling frustrated and overwhelmed is completely natural – and professional help can help navigate through this period.
