The rate of divorce is high among families affected by disability. But what happens when parents of children with special needs remarry and blend into a new family? Listen as host Vangie Rodenbeck interviews her husband Jason and they discuss their ideas on managing the challenges of step-parenting a child with different abilities, blended children from different families and honoring God in the process.
Jason and Vangie Rodenbeck live in Cumming, GA. They brought together 3 children from each of their previous marriages. Vangie son, Noah, lives with an autism spectrum disorder.
Raising a blended family comes with its share of hurdles. In the United States, approximately one-third of all households are blended. With patience and a optimistic outlook, the blended family can be one filled with affection, respect, and appreciation.
It isn’t easy for the children when parents remarry. They are trapped in the middle of a situation that can cause immediate feelings of frustration and sadness.
It can be particularly hard to find the right balance when you’re a stepparent. Many adults try to blend their families with high expectations. Many think it will be similar to their previous marriage in terms of time spent with their spouse and the attentiveness they’ll be able to give the relationship. Unfortunately, this may not match your reality.
Every family has a different dynamic. The trick to making a blended family work is finding a new, combined dynamic that includes time spent together, discipline, and rules BOTH parties can live with.
Let’s look at 7 tips for creating a great blended family.
