Ron: Ron, I thought I was going crazy, but now I know I’m not alone.

Announcer: For FamilyLife Blended®, here’s Ron Deal.

Ron: Tina had just read an article online about parents who get paralyzed and don’t set boundaries for their children—which, by the way, is just plain hazardous for kids because they need to learn respect for authority. In Tina’s case, she and her husband were a blended family. She worked hard at structure and expectations with the kids, but her husband—well, to be honest, he just let his son do whatever he wanted.

You can’t have two different parenting styles in the same home; you’re just going to have conflict. Now you’re both going to have adjustments to make, but if you’re the paralyzed parent, there’s hope. You can move again. Let us help you. For FamilyLife Blended I’m Ron Deal.
