But, what we never take into account is when "Forever" does not happen and we left being single parents then what's the next move? Well, according to statitics about 75% of people remarry or get into other relationships, which means that kids from past relationships get brought into new relationships. Then what?
Confusion happens! However, the kids often times get past the confusion once the stability of that new relationship reveals itself, which leaves only one issue on the table.

According to a study conducted by researchers at the University of Iowa, racial stereotypes affect black boys as young as five years old.
White participants in the study were more likely to view a toy as a weapon if it was associated with black boys, reports The Daily Mail. Those who participated in the study were less likely to view a toy as a weapon if it were associated with a white boy.
Seeing the face of a black boy was enough for the white students in the study to misidentify the toy as a weapon.
Lead researcher, Dr. Andrew Todd, said this study shows how people who don’t view themselves as racist can still react with unconscious bias.
“Our findings suggest that, although young children are typically viewed as harmless and innocent, seeing faces of five-year-old Black boys appears to trigger thoughts of guns and violence,” Dr Todd said.
“One of the most pernicious stereotypes of Black Americans, particularly black men, is that they are hostile and violent,” he explained.
“So pervasive are these threat-related associations that they can shape even low-level aspects of social cognition.”
The white college students were shown images of black five-year-olds and white five-year-olds. Then they were shown a second image which they were told to identify as quickly as possible. Participants recognized guns quicker after seeing images of black boys. They were also quicker to mistake toys for guns after viewing images of black boys.

Join Dr. Angela Lauria of Book Journeys as she interviews Valerie LaPenta Steiger on the writing and publishing of her book, Mafia | Kitten: Lessons for Strong Women on Finally Letting Go, Feeling Safe, and Being Loved.
Valerie Steiger is a life coach, a leadership consultant, a writer, and a retreat specialist. But above all else, she describes herself as a "mafia-kitten" which is a pet name to herself that describes her strength spectrum that ranges from being SO STRONG (mafia) to helpless, weak (kitten). As the subtitle of her book states, she's written it for women and how they can let go, feel safe, and be loved. It is for women of both mafia and kitten poles and dissects what makes them vulnerable through stories that actually happened.
Valerie's choice of topic for the book would seem quite a lot to absorb at a time, but it makes sense since it's really a vehicle that represents the hundreds of women that she has worked with and coached who've experienced, as she had, what it felt like to be forced to be strong, to build walls against criticism and abuse, and to be left feeling alone, afraid, confused and yearning for happiness and love.
Tapping into her own experiences, Valerie's intention for the book is to guide women to release hurtful memories and haunting thoughts and to be secure once again in life, grounded in hope, faith and self-love that nurtures the true strength that lies inside them.
