15 thoughts on “How to Combine a Blended Family”

  1. I love this. I have a blended family and while it took some love and work at first, we made it happen because we all were made to be together!

  2. We don’t have a blended family, but I have a friend who does. She and her husband had a bit of a rocky start with the family blending but it’s going well now.

  3. This is great advice for anyone with a blended family or who is in the process of blending two families into one. It can be difficult but it is worth it.

  4. This is such a great post. I went through this as a teenager. It was difficult, but we all made it work.

  5. This is such great sounding advice, I can imagine it is a bit step when you move in with other child for kids. x

  6. We don’t have a typical blended family, but when we adopted our twins 3 years ago, we dealt with a lot of the same issues blended families face. It definitely took a while for all the kids to warm up to each other.

  7. I can only imagine that becoming a blended family definitely has its hurdles. Making sure everyone gets along is vital.

  8. This is some great advice for blended families.
    I know it was a challenge for my brother-in-law just to get his two children to get used to his new wife (who did not have children of her own), let alone for a true blended family!

  9. This is so hard, especially for the teens. As much as possible, I don’t want this to happen on my own family.

  10. Managing a family is never easy. A blended family can present certain concerns, but there are so many great tips. I’ve seen it work so well!

  11. I have to say I’m obsessed with the finger anchor tatoos! I think any family situation takes work. Communication is key and certainly in a blended family there are lots of dynamics at play. Great advice!

  12. I’m so glad you shared this. Such great tips. It really can be a difficult transition and these tips will help make it much more smooth.

  13. I think it’s hard to blend families. I see it with my friends all of the time and some make it work beautifully, but it’s never easy skating the whole time (Just like anything good). 🙂

  14. What a great post. I can see this being so helpful for people trying to deal with combining blended families.

  15. Good info up there, it’s also a good read even for people outside the situation. Bringing up the “kid” reason is also a healthy way to put down the debate when the non-siblings are fighting.
