FamilyLife Blended® Minute
What’s Your Role?
Parents, what's your role when it comes to your kids and the other parent?
About the Guest
Whether you're married and raising your kids together, or you have a co-parent who lives in the other home, or maybe there's a stepparent who lives with you; I'm wondering, are you a defender--speaking up for one side or the other or an interpreter who tries to translate and bridge the gap between the other two. You can play either one of these roles some of the time but don't get stuck in them all of the time. And, as much as you can, stand with your spouse. Be united.
