Difficulties for the parent and their partner

Parents can face problems adjusting to their new family, including:

  • One or both partners may bring hang-ups and unresolved feelings from their prior failed relationship into the current situation.
  • Disciplining someone else’s child can cause resentments.
  • There could be unexpected problems with child maintenance or access visits.
  • The partners may have conflicting visions of family life or different rules for the home.
  • A parent/partner may not like their partner’s children.
  • Even positive change can be stressful.
