Ron: Being a part-time parent is challenging.

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

Ron: You know, stepparents, when kids are in your home part-time bonding can feel like it’s one step forward and two steps back. And, biological parents can wrestle with balancing time to connect with expecting the child to contribute around the home. For parents and stepparents alike it’s just tough to find the balance.

Okay, so here’s the deal. All you can do is all you can do. If circumstances limit your time together, make the most of it as best you can, but realize you can’t overcome every barrier. Make time for fun, but balance it with what life demands. Hey, even chores can be opportunities for conversation, training, and big hugs. For FamilyLife Blended, I’m Ron Deal.
