Bonus Parent Essentials is class specifically designed for step-parents looking for ways to navigate and enhance the way they work within the family system. If you are a step-parent trying to find ways to better support both your spouse and child, this class is for you.
This class has the tools and knowledge, such as understanding your role in the family system, and identifying how the system functions overall. Upon completion of the course, you will leave feeling comfortable being able to speak, support, and recognize problems in the system when they arise.
As the step-parent, stress can manifest itself in arguments between you and your spouse, child, and even the other biological parent. This often causes conflicts in your relationships. It leaves you feeling stuck and helpless to your partner and child. You feel confused, unsure, and angry that you cannot fix or help the problem, leaving you feeling unappreciated for the work and effort that you have put into the system. Not knowing your place is frustrating when trying to manage your marriage and your parental role.
Your system has several moving parts. We believe helping you understand your influence and strength within the system, you are more equipped to help the system function in a way that benefits everyone.
