  • Ron, in our stepfamily we all get along great at the holidays, but even after three years my husband's adult children often leave my kids out. Should I be concerned? Well, since they all get along to some degree, I wouldn't worry too much that the biological siblings compartmentalize some of their time. That's okay. Don't try to force togetherness. If your kids want to be included more, let them ask. It's better that you get out of the way and the siblings figure this out on their own.

Ron: What do you do when one group of kids leaves out the other?

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

Ron: Ron, in our stepfamily my husband’s adult children often spend time with their younger siblings without my kids. We all get along great at the holidays, but outside of that, even after three years his kids often leave my kids out. Should I be concerned about this?

Well, there are a few considerations here. Since they all get along to some degree, I wouldn’t worry too much that the biological siblings compartmentalize some of their time. That’s okay. Don’t try to force togetherness. If your kids want to be included more, let them ask. It’s better that you get out of the way and the siblings figure this out on their own. For FamilyLife Blended, I’m Ron Deal.
