Many of the dynamics of a remarriage are unique to first marriages and need extra attention. This workshop is open to couples already remarried or considering remarriage. Topics include blending families, step-parenting, step-discipline, couple expectations, co-parenting, communication, conflict resolution, step-parent/step-child development, finances (#2 reason for step-family breakup), and more. The class has been condensed to just three weeks to make it more convenient to attend but is packed full of important information you don’t want to miss! Developed and led by several step-families, this workshop is unique in Southern California. Breakfast is provided each week after class so come hungry for the info and the food.
