  • Parenting has many seasons to it. If you've got a kid over 20, you know what I mean. Stepparents and foster parents jump into that river mid-stream-while learning to swim at the same time. Reactions like, "my kid never acted like this." Or, "I've never had a teenager before-is this normal?" are common. Hey, it's easy to get lost in the rapids so help each other out. The biological parent can fill in a few gaps while the stepparent plays catch-up. Slow down. Get in sync. And hang on for the ride.

Ron: When jumping into a river, try avoiding the rapids!

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

Ron: Parenting has many seasons to it. If you’ve got a kid over 20, you know what I mean. There were the cute baby days, the challenging toddler two’s, the fun elementary years, and the freaky and frustrating adolescent years—you get the picture.

Stepparents and foster parents jump into that river mid-stream—while learning to swim at the same time. Reactions like, “my kid never acted like this.” Or, “I’ve never had a teenager before—is this normal?” are pretty common. Hey, it’s easy to get lost in the rapids so help each other out. The biological parent can fill in a few gaps while the stepparent plays catch-up. Slow down. Get in sync. And hang on for the ride. For FamilyLife Blended, I’m Ron Deal.
