Laurie Marchel is a business executive in the financial services industry and the author of The Stepmoms’ Club: How to Be a Stepmom Without Losing Your Money, Your Mind, and Your Marriage. She joins Stacy Francis to share tips for navigating a blended family.


  • When making decisions regarding the safety of your children, their best interest should come first.
  • According to statistics, 1300 stepfamilies are formed every day in the US.
  • The four D’s of stepparenting are: Documents, which will give you, as a stepfamily, a glimpse into your future; Dollars, which involves understanding financial obligations and responsibilities; Delegation, which centers around seeking professional assistance; and Do stay true to yourself, which is a reminder to stepmothers to not lose sight of who they are in the wake of assuming their new responsibilities.
  • Parents in blended families need to communicate about plans for Mother’s Day, as a lack of communication may result in plans that unintentionally slight stepparents.
