Re: Advice on Blended Families needed

I agree with others who said, make sure you have enough room for everyone. We are dealing with things being cramped and crowded right now. My teen daughter shares her bedroom with her younger step sister and brother, every other weekend. It is ROUGH. Also, you have to be on the same page with parenting styles. How the disciplining will go etc. House rules need to be laid with the children from the very beginning, with no swaying from them, for anyone. If you sway with one, be expected to hear the others chime in about why and how it's not fair! This will add to the already stressful situation. Take time to talk to your partner about the situations and problems as they arise. Communication is key. If things are rocky now, moving in together won't make it better.

Re: Advice on Blended Families needed

We made a huge mistake, and I am paying for it (divorce).

You must read up on it, discipline was the mane thing that killed us. Parenting style must be talked about. Parent your own kids but you both talk and agree on each thing, if not compromise. Never talk in front of the children, they will know who the bad guy is. Never try to replace the other biological parent even if they are not good. Good communication. Unconditional love.

Good luck.

I am trying to get help with mine. I wanted it badly but my sons didn't like him the way he did them. My sons grew up differently they he did, he wanted more love than they could give him. I was too passive, I should of made my son do my ways.

If anyone has to the time I would love help sorting my wrong doing. How to help my boys be better men and want a big family. All the men was alike and didn't want to give. Hated everyone who didn't think just like them. I love my husband and hated that he made me pick. He has 3 girls and they did no wrong. I was not treated like head lady but a kid.

need help.
