A blended family happens when one of the parents re-partners with someone else who has children.
This can involve even more change and rearranging as the two partners work out a new family system that involves all of their respective children, as well as the other parents of their children.
Children whose parents find a new partner still need time to maintain relationships with their other parent.
If all of this sounds complicated, well, that’s because it is.
Making separated and blended family systems work does take quite a bit of effort.
