Parenting is never easy, but when you are part of a blended family—combining stepchildren, ex-partners, plus extended family members… all thrown into the mix—things may get complicated quite quickly. Steve and Bekah Legg, who parent a blended family with 6 children between them, provide some helpful tips on navigating these waters.
In this second edition we are joined by Rob Parson, founder of Care for the Family and Katharine Hill UK Director. Rob and Katharine discuss the importance of listening to our children. Listening isn’t as easy as it sounds, but listening to your child's viewpoint will teach you a lot and provide opportunities to find out what’s going on in your child’s head. Listening to our children shows respect and builds strong relationships now and in the future.
In this very first podcast we are delighted to be joined by Nicky and Sila Lee – who drawing on their own experience of bringing up four children, talk about the importance of creating family traditions, which help family members get to know and trust each other more intimately, creating a bond that comes from feeling that you are part of something unique and special.
