Blended Families

Cheshire Mediation LLC Conflict Resolution in the Monadnock Region

Blended families have become the new norm.  The majority of re-marriages involve children of previous marriage, and most people will be in some form of “step” or “blended” family at some point, as a parent and/or as a child.

Mediation provides structure and support as you consider when and how to introduce a new significant other to your children, when and how to co-habitate, how to coordinate household rules and schedules, and how to survive the inevitable conflicts with grace and good humor intact.

Blended Family Mediations can be set up as family meetings, to include the children of the household.  This can be particularly helpful with adolescent children, who may be struggling with being parented across households and in the context of new step-sibling and step-parent relationships.
