  • I was 10 and I just had to tell my parent's friend, Mrs. Roush something. She held up her hand like a traffic cop, shook her head "no," and kept talking to her friend until she finished, then I could talk. Now, all kids need to learn not to interrupt adults because it teaches a child respect. They shouldn't interrupt parents either because whoever gets to interrupt gets to be in charge. So, in stepfamilies a biological parent can support a stepparent just by not allowing kids to interrupt.

Interrupting is disrespectful.

Ron: Interrupting is disrespectful.

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

Ron: I was 10 years old and I just had to tell Mrs. Roush something. She was a friend of my parents, but she wouldn’t let me interrupt her. She wouldn’t even look at me. She just held up her hand like a traffic cop, shook her head “no,” and kept talking to her friend until she finished, then I could talk. Now, all kids need to learn not to interrupt adults unless someone is bleeding, of course, because it teaches a child respect. They shouldn’t interrupt parents either because whoever gets to interrupt gets to be in charge.

So, in stepfamilies a biological parent can support a stepparent just by not allowing kids to interrupt. Respect is good. For FamilyLife Blended, I’m Ron Deal.
