It's Everything, Always in Blended Families with Summer Mulder on The Divorce & Beyond Podcast with Susan Guthrie, Esq. #170

In this episode Susan Guthrie chats with Summer Mulder, who co-hosts the Everything Always Podcast with her husband, Mike, with tips and insights for successfully blending your families! In the United States today, there are more step-families or blended families than there are "original" families which means that melding families together is a common experience for the majority these days.  That doesn't mean that it is easy and Summer and Mike Mulder have managed to positively bring their two families together and they share their experience on their podcast, Everything Always.  Summer joins Susan to discuss what worked for them as they combined their lives, their kids and their homes so that you can find support and help as you do the same! Some highlights from the episode: Why they waited several years before getting married and how that helped their process; What impact age and personality differences between their kids had on their journey; How family meetings were instrumental in helping them work through the bumps along the way; The one practice that put a positive spin on their discussions; and MUCH MORE! If your family is one of the more than 30,000,000 that has children living in step or bonus-families, then this is the episode for you!
