Parenting in a stepfamily requires a combination of traditional parenting skills and a specialized knowledge that shows how step-families are different. This video series is designed to help couples work together to build a successful step-family. Topics include dealing with differences, discipline issues, avoiding loyalty conflicts, establishing limits of time, space, authority, and money; dealing with power struggles, and creating a cycle of success. Active Parenting is designed for couples with stepchildren under age 18, and can be taken by any stepparents, or by couples preparing for remarriage in conjunction with a Cana II or PREP day. Active Parenting is included in the cost of Cana II or PREP ($125 per couple); or $50 when taken without Cana II or PREP. Call 216-334-2975 for details.
