Step-parenting is like walking a tightrope. You don’t want to be in the biological parent’s shadow, but, at the same time, you know if you try taking over as mother or father, you’re rocking a family boat that’s already unstable. Also, you want to be loved and respected, but you know love and respect don’t happen instantly. In this podcast, Dr. Sara and Dr. John talk about four big step-parenting challenges and offer tips and resources to help make it so step-parents don’t fall off their parenting tightrope.
This podcast is brought to you by the National Parenting Education Network, and the Charles Engelhard Foundation.
