Counseling for Blended Families – Therapists and Counselors in Chesterfield

Blended families represent a beautiful new step in life, but they can also present their own unique challenges.

All families have problems, disagreements and trials, but a blended family presents a different set of issues that a traditional family may not have to experience. Blended families often result from divorce. This presents an emotional roller coaster that is challenging to process. Many people who are divorced have never fully recovered from the emotional and psychological pain that the experience of divorce creates. When entering into a new marriage and family, many of the issues of the past relationship can come back up, causing anxiety and stress.

Children also can have difficulty with a new blended family

The new couple may not agree on discipline or parenting styles, and former husbands or wives may have a lot of influence on these decisions. It can take time to develop a relationship between a stepparent and stepchild. The stepparent needs to be intentional in creating the bond, and taking time to do so. It is important to not try to replace a parent, but rather should create a new and unique bond with the child. The age and gender of the child also will influence how they adapt to their new family as well.

Strife and stress in any family is best dealt with outside of an argument. Spending time working out how the new family dynamics will look is beneficial to preventing possible disagreements in the future. Counseling is not only good for the family, but also for the individual.
