Your opinion
So, the separation is a done deal, and your mother or your father has found a new love! And it turns out they have their own children and everyone is going to live together! It can be hard to merge two families into one harmonious unit! But it's not impossible...


YOUR OPINION

Talk about how this situation makes you feel. Everyone is going to have to adapt to the new situation. Talking things over is a good way to start looking for solutions or compromises. What do you say?

Keep an open mind. Who knows, maybe it'll be less horrible than you think! In the beginning, everyone reacts to change, good or bad! Have you given yourself time to see what living in this new family really means?

Remember that it’s not your parent's partner's kids’ fault that you’re stuck in this new situation. They’re probably going through the same thing you are!
