In the first role-play scenario I ask a mom and dad to enter their house and discover a messy kitchen. The kids had good intentions but left a mess. Then we replay the scenario and I make only one change: a parent and a stepparent enter the house. It's amazing how different the situation plays out the second time. Instead of being united and asking the kids to clean up, the parents turn on each other. Sound familiar? Blended families, we can teach you why this happens and how to stand together.

Instead of being united and asking the kids to clean up, the parents turn on each other. Sound familiar? Blended families, we can teach you why this happens and how to stand together.

Ron: Sometimes, make-believe tells us a lot about real life.

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

Ron: When speaking around the country sometimes I like to pick a few people out of the audience and ask them to do a simple role-play. In the first scenario I ask a mom and dad to walk into their house and discover a bit of a mess in the kitchen. The kids had good intentions, but never-the-less, made a mess.

Then we replay the scenario and I make only one change: a parent and a stepparent enter the house. It’s amazing how different the situation plays out the second time. Instead of being united and asking the kids to clean up, the parents turn on each other. Sound familiar? Blended families, we can teach you why this happens and how to stand together. For FamilyLife Blended, I’m Ron Deal.
