3 Unique Ways to Help Kids Embrace a Blended Family

Posted By Judy Williams || 3-Jul-2013

As you all know, I’m passionate about facilitating a peaceful divorce for couples, for many reasons. But a primary reason is to protect the children involved. Life moves on after divorce, though, and another hurdle you may face is blending families, should you meet someone (with children of their own) and decide to remarry.

According to the U.S. Census Bureau, there are approximately 1,300 new stepfamilies formed every day in the United States (that is by marriage). And of the 60 million American children younger than 13, half are currently living with one biological parent and that parent’s partner. With all of these wedding happening that are creating blended families, one of the trends I’ve noticed recently is that couples are trying to find ways to include their stepchildren in their marriage ceremony and commemorate the union of all members of the new blended family.

Recognizing and paying tribute to the children in a newly blended family is a great way for couples to help children realize they are not losing a parent, but rather gaining another person or group of people to love and support them throughout their future.
