BLENDED FAMILIES - INTRODUCING A NEW MAN INTO THEIR LIVES

Bec and little William

Bec and little William

Bec is one of the most beautiful people you’d ever be likely to meet, inside and out but over a year ago through no fault of her own her marriage had to end. She is the sort of person that would go over and above for anyone, there was this one time when she was on her death bed and still managed to bake my daughter the most beautiful birthday cake you’ve ever seen and she is a support to so many friends so it’s been hard to watch the cards life dealt her in that regard.

We were all really wrapt for Bec when a partner entered her life and treated her with the respect she deserved. He loved her the way we know she deserved to be loved and cared for her children like they were his own.

This is a show dedicated to introducing a new partner into your children’s lives. Key factors to look out for that indicate your kids are coping well or maybe not so. We tackle the question of, how do you integrate children under the one roof that have been raised with completely different parenting styles? How do you survive as a new couple and thrive together instead of allowing the children to pull you sideways and apart? Bec's raw account of what it's like to blend a family is engaging and relevant and Dr Rickie Elliott from The Hummingbird Centre ‘s professional opinion is golden. Listen below.
