The Step-parent dynamic is one of the most, if not THE most, challenging relationship dynamics. There are many good reasons for this, and some not good reasons.
- Someone else is loving and taking care of OUR kids.
- Our kids are loving and enjoying being with another parent-type person, and for many that is simply intolerable.
- Sometimes people are so mad at each other and holding so much resentment that it leaks out all over everyone who comes into contact with them.
And the list goes on and on.
We can all talk about the problems and challenges from our own experience, and from the experiences of friends, family members, the parents of our kids’ friends.
But what we don’t do is talk about how to resolve the Step-stuff that is normal and natural. And that is the subject of our podcast today.
My guest for this episode is Jenna Korf ,co-author of the book, “Skirts At War: Beyond Divorced Mom/Stepmom Conflict,” a Certified Stepfamily coach, blogger, stepmom and a stepchild! Jenna is also the developer of the Stepfamily Certification Course.
