Marriage & Families: How to Reach Blended Families


Today we have a variety of "blended" families. There are subsequent marriages where children are brought together from different unions; single parents with children from different partners; grandparents raising grandchildren; multigenerational families where parents live with their children, or relatives; families who add adoptive or abandoned children to their household. There are probably other combinations but these are the main ones. Blended families present additional challenges to the ones that already exist for conventional families.
