Blended Life: In-Laws and Step Child Discipline

Blended Life: In-Laws and Step Child Discipline

WOW. We covered a lot of ground in this blended life podcast episode. This week we decided to bring up topics that our viewers and social media followers requested us to discuss. Like kids, in-laws can really help to dissolve or #strengthenamarriage. Many couples don’t give the proper level of importance, nor pay a proper level of attention, to spouse/in-law relationships before walking down the isle. We break down why this shouldn’t be overlooked or side-stepped. We talk about how our #inlaws accepted us when we decided to blend our family and how in-laws keeping in contact/friendship with your ex can affect the dynamic of your marriage. Is it appropriate for your parent to keep in contact with your ex? Good question! After we squash that, we dive right into step children and discipline. Two questions were given to us that we tackle: 1. What do you do when your spouse (the step parent) disciplines or parents your child in a way you disagree with? and 2. What do you do when your #stepchild ignores or disrespects you? We do our best to answer each. Both very trending topics among step families. As always we keep it real and don’t hold back, which is apparent. Enjoy!
