About the event

Are you or your spouse facing challenges coming with your (fairly) new family situation?

Are you a step-parent, a parent with a child in a relationship?

A blended family, also known as a stepfamily, is a family formed when two people come together and bring a child or children from previous relationships. When a blended family is formed, your children might be of the same age group or have major age differences, and you might also have a child together.

As an adult, when you first re-partner, your relationship with your child’s other parent can go through a tricky time because they might be feeling angry, insecure, upset or worried about the change. You might need to adjust your co-parenting agreement to fit with your new family arrangements.

Do you feel sometimes like creating a new family together is hard and requires a lot of work? 

Does it overwhelm you at times?

Do you need to get something out of your chest and talk to other parents who are facing similar challenges?

You are in the right space! Blended & Step Family Support Circle is a space for everyone who is trying to adjust to the reality of a mixed family environment.

This circle is there for people who are having a hard time and want better. It is meant for those who would like to exchange their experiences and meet others who are facing similar challenges.

This is the space where we create a community and support each other through these times. 

One of the most common challenges you might be facing in your step/blended family situation:

  • child and new partner don’t get along
  • problem with an ex-partner (using your child as a tool for revenge, turning your child against your current partner, etc.)
  • child withdrawal, change of behaviour
  • jealousy of the new spouse / or the child
  • problems with step-siblings
  • boundaries with kids and/or ex-partners
  • who does what now (roles in the family)
  • ex-partner is blocking access to our kid
  • bad relationship with ex-partner
  • and many more!
  • Blended families and stepfamilies come in various shapes and sizes.
  • Blended families can mean new and rich relationships.
  • Blended families can have challenges as you establish new relationships, rules and boundaries.

It takes time to get used to living in a blended family. The early years in blended families are about getting used to the new family and building family relationships.

It can also take time to establish your blended family’s boundaries and rules. This can be because the families coming together have different family rules and because everyone is still getting to know each other.
