How to build a happy blended family

Wednesday 29 November from 5.30pm – 6.30pm

An estimated one in three families in the UK are “blended”, meaning they have a combination of parents, new partners and children from different relationships.

And they face unique challenges. It takes time for a blended family to bond. The coming together of two households with their traditions, rules and boundaries can sometimes cause difficulties, particularly around holidays such as Christmas.

Join host and family lawyer Sarah Barr-Young, and special guest Nichole Farrow, one of the UK’s leading mindset coaches, who supports divorcing parents, as she offers her advice on how to build happy and positive blended families.

 In this session, Nichole will cover: 

  • The foundations / principles for successfully blending families:
  • Creating unity and a common goal
  • Establishing healthy open communication
  • Creating and respecting boundaries
  • Dealing with conflict
  • Providing emotional support
  • Forging new traditions and rituals
  • Adjusting to new roles

 There will also be an opportunity for Q&A at the end of the session.
