In the wake of the beat down issued to Gabriel Aubry,  Halle Berry’s “baby daddy” we must talk about how to better manage blended families.  Have you seen the pictures?

Let’s face it blended families are the cultural norm.  But, how are we dealing with it? Do we really sit down with the children and explain the situation?  Are the biological parents in conversation with the new parent?  Are we blending our families before we have complete buy- in from the children or are we only considering our “adult needs?” Are we having these types of discussions during the dating process?

Information from the most recent Vital Statistics Report shows:

Of American children under 18 years of age:

  • 52.1% live with two parents
    26.3% live with only their biological mother 
    5.4% live with only their biological father 
    3.0% live with other relatives
    1.2% live with non-relatives

Join us tonight as we navigate through this difficult conversation of how to better manage our blended families.
