Making step-families work well

published: 10-28-2010

If you have children from a previous relationship and are building a new one, consider discussing these issues to reduce conflict:

  • Decide together where you should live and how you will manage your money.
  • Close the door on your last relationship; resolve feelings and issues from your past relationship.
  • Determine step parenting roles and responsibilities.
  • Establish rules and boundaries for the blended family.

The American Psychological Association suggests that you make each other a priority by having regular dates and taking trips without the children.
