Today’s family dynamics are much different than the family dynamics 30, 20, even 10 years ago. In today’s society, it is very common to see blended families as a result of a remarriage or divorce, in fact one-third of all new marriages create a blended family. Blended families can be wonderful and rewarding especially when the children and the adults grow to love and accept each new member of the family, but it takes a lot of hard work to make sure everyone in the new family is loved and accepted by all.
Children of blended families may face feelings of anxiety, jealousy, resentment, and may not understand where they fit in with the new family dynamic. Parents are often faced with differences in parenting styles, conflict resolution, and insecurity with a spouse’s former partner, along with any custody issues. Many of these feelings are unavoidable but can be worked through with proper counseling that allows each side the opportunity to be open and honest about their feelings.
