  • Slide 11 - Many stepfamilies are born of loss (divorce, death, separation). Stepfamily members may be dealing with unresolved grief. Children grieve the loss of their first family, even if there were a lot of problems.  Stepfamilies are not always formed after a death or divorce. Some stepfamilies are formed when a never-married parent marries a new partner who is not the biological parent of the child.   Information for blended families
  • Slide 12 - Each family is coming to the stepfamily with its own history, routines, and traditions.  Children are often members of two households It generally takes 4-7 years for a stepfamily to stabilize. Children are especially likely to experience loyalty conflicts when a parent is not supportive of the child's relationship with the stepparent or vice versa
  • Slide 13 - Stepparent-stepchild relationships go more smoothly when the stepparent acts as a friend, rather than a parent toward the stepchild in the beginning and supports the biological parent. Family transitions are difficult for both younger and older children Stepparents do not automatically have legal rights to authorize medical care or have access to school records, among other rights
