Blending Healthy Families Podcast

Jun 30, 2021

In blended families, we all come from different backgrounds with different experiences - including the kiddos. 

I wanted to break down the habits we use every day to help the kids feel welcomed into our home and give them that ability to take that compassion out into the world. 

In this episode, we learn the difference: 

**Equity: the quality of being fair or impartial; fairness; impartiality: something that is fair and just.

**Equality: the state or quality of being equal.

I believe this means not everyone gets the same thing, but that everyone gets what they need to succeed. 

This can look like:

  • Unfairness on the surface
  • Unique discipline between siblings
  • Level-setting between parents 
  • Foundational marriage practices for the stepparent

I also give you a great analogy to teach any kid claiming “Life’s Not Fair!!”

How do you handle the dynamics of your blended family to help everyone succeed?
