Step-Families and Moving on

     Step-families can be very complicated. The number of children that are involved, and how the children get along with the new step-parent, are very important factors to consider when dealing with the structure of a step-family.

     In spite of the fact that step-families are very complex and difficult, it is possible for you and the new family to become a very strong family unit. You and everyone else needs time to adjust to the new way the family operates. Each step-family member must also look at things from the other step-family member's point of view. Remember that a new step-family member cannot just jump into a new family and take charge. The new family must take things very slowly, and each family member must carefully think things out before they act.
