Re: Staying strong on decisions

Hi @Needadvice

It can be so hard being in a blended family.  Especially with the 10 year old.  That's the age where they really need rules and boundaries but your partner needs to be on the same page.  Have you guys called "family meetings" where the 3 of you are there to talk about issues.  And maybe take it is one issue at a time to work on.  If you break it down it wont seem so impossible.  Hang in there.  I know you will have way more influence on the toddler.
