Overview

With The Medicine Wheel For Step Parents, I hope to give some understanding and relief to blended families. Step families have common threads of dysfunction. There are many issues which form these common threads. These issues occur between step parent and step child and biological parent, biological child, and extended family in blended families. I have listed the issues and have offered affordable solutions that are within our grasp. These common threads reappear in every aspect of family life including financial matters such as your child’s Social Security checks, child support checks, medical bills, and the parents’ Will. These issues occur when the power structure changes in a home after a divorce or death in a family. Everyone is left in a gigantic power struggle which retires parents prematurely. Step parents and step children feel that they must protect their territory, ego, and family with secrets, isolation, intimidation, manipulation, and stonewalling behavior.
When step families are choking, parents, step parents, and step children do not have to be severely depressed, take multiple medications for depression and energy, get a divorce, or attempt suicide for relief. Biological parents and step parents do not have to be retired prematurely. There are better ways to keep everyone functioning in blended families.
My book will not take away all of the opposition you experience in blended families. We learn by overcoming opposition, not creating opposition. This book helps you analyze and carry the opposition to your efforts for your blended family.
