How do we build a loving, blended family? Bringing two families into one is challenging and rewarding. What are some of the joys of having a blended family? What challenges do blended families face? According to the American Academy of Child and Adolescent Psychiatry, it can take up to two years for blended families to adjust to changes. But parents who are proactive in addressing potential problems can make the adjustment smoother. Join us today as I interview Dana Herbst. She is the mother and step-mother to five children that are still in the home. She’ll share how she has loved, encouraged, spent time with the children and helped them bond as a loving family unit. We’ll talk about building a loving, blended family.
