When kids enter an adoptive family, a foster family, or a blended family their expectations of who's in charge may be different than the adult's. It's really important to settle that question. In a stepfamily, the biological parent can set the tone. "I expect you to be courteous and respect your stepparent just like you would any authority figure." Yeah, that ought to do it.

Now, I expect you to be courteous.

Ron: Now, I expect you to be courteous.

Announcer: For FamilyLife Blended®, here’s Ron Deal.

Ron: Have you ever given that speech to your kids? Maybe you were leaving the kids with a babysitter or you were sending them to the neighbor’s house or the pastor’s house and you wanted them to act nice and mind their manners. When kids enter an adoptive family, a foster family, or a blended family their expectations of who’s in charge may be different than the adults. It’s really important to settle that question.

In a stepfamily, the biological parent is the one who can set the tone for the kids and help the stepparent out. “I expect you to be courteous and respect your stepparent just like you would any authority figure. Mind your manners.” Yeah, that ought to do it.  For FamilyLife Blended I’m Ron Deal.
