ADVICE ON STEP-PARENTING

Entering into a new relationship with children from a previous relationship adds a different dynamic to the family.

According to psychologists, step-parenting requires honest communication between biological parents and new partners, as well as patience with children and yourself as everyone adjusts to the new family.

The key thing to remember as a step-parent is that you aren’t there to replace the biological parent, so don’t try to overcompensate in an attempt to prove yourself to your partner and the children. Take the adjustment one step at a time, making sure that everyone learns to trust and live with each other with respect.
