How to get along with your stepchildren
Adele Cornish, BSW
After receiving some emails lately from stepparents who are really struggling with not liking their stepchildren I’ve started a blog on the topic of ‘How to get along with your stepchildren’.
Stepparents going through this difficult stage need encouragement from those who have lived through it and reaped the rewards.
The thing is, it’s easy to focus on a problem and allow it to become all consuming at the expense of your couple relationship. In other words you find the kids so difficult that at this point you just want to escape it all. You’re prepared to quit and sacrifice the long-term wellbeing of your couple relationship because of the children.
There’s a saying that goes ‘You will never possess what you’re unwilling to pursue.’
If you want to enjoy great relationships you have to push on through the tough stages and pursue them. Some of you have done this so here’s your chance to share how you got through the issue of not wanting or liking your stepchildren.
Please let these stepparents see that it is possible!
