Step-Families and Moving on
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.
