We all know that that even the strongest relationships face great challenges. When two people decide to blend families those challenges can often feel magnified and compounded.
Westside and Beyond Blended Family Support Group offers a supportive and comfortable environment for individuals and couples who want to meet others who share in the same common challenges and struggles that we all face.
As part of our group we want to offer opportunities to meet and create meaningful discussions around important and relevant topics such as how to communicate without feeling defensive, How to manage feelings, what to do when kids act out, how to love your partner when you are hurting, how to show step children love and support they can feel comfortable with, the importance of dating your spouse etc....
We hope to also create workshops that will include guest speakers who will take us through various discussions and topics.
Our hope is to create a community that can help build friendships and foster a support system for one another, and to offer encouragement and advice when we all face the challenges that come with blended families. That might look like venting to the group, seeking advice, sharing tips and celebrating wins!
We are growing and always encourage your ideas. If you want to see something offered in the group or have a great idea, please drop us a note.
It takes a village to raise a child and it takes a community to stand behind and support that village!
