“Do I have to share a room with my bratty little stepsister?” “Why does he get away with everything and I don’t?”
These are just a few of the questions that parents often hear when they blend our family. We usually get remarried the best of intentions and expectations, but blended families are difficult.
Parents often have to deal with two major problems: 1) new rules and expectations, and 2) divided loyalties. These are just some of the reasons that second marriages fail over 67% of the time.
At Ray Levy PhD and Associates, we talk to parents and children about what to expect and how to resolve these differences. We know blended families can be difficult, and we can help.
