Blended Families

Due to issues such as differing parenting and discipline styles, the development of new relationships, and strong emotions, it may take time for one family to get used to living with another. Studies show that it generally takes between two and five years for a blended family to transition successfully. Family therapy is often an effective way for a blended family to work through issues that each member brings to the new unit. This helps the transition be healthier and aid in long term success.
