Is there hope for my Blended Family?
Are you in a blended family that is driving you crazy? Are you getting ready to blend families? This transition can be extremely difficult for everyone involved. SDFMC is now practicing a new type of mediation for blended families. The process involves all parental units to commit to working with each other to make this transition as easy as possible for the children involved (and for themselves). While everyone comes to the sessions together, they will be broken into smaller groups to discuss some of the issues involved on a smaller more intimate level while the mediators try to get a fair sense of what is really going on in each household. Once a solid foundation is in place, the parties will be brought back together to discuss the issues as a group.
Being part of a blended family myself growing up, I know all too well the stress of moving in with strangers who are magically suppose to become your “brothers and sisters.” I wish blended family mediation was available to us when we went through it! Learning the proper way to communicate in the very beginning can make a huge difference in the long term success of a blended family. Please contact us today to learn more: (858) 736-2411.
