Being a step parent shouldn’t be like it is for you. You know how you want things to be but you’re working at it all alone. Whether your partner is your husband or you’ve only just moved in together, things aren’t how you imagined they would be – or how they should be after all the work you’ve done and sacrifices you’ve made.
This workshop isn't like all the others.
This time, it's all about you.
You're the key to everything!
Alone: You feel like you're doing it all alone
Sacrifice: It feels as though you're making all the sacrifices
Unappreciated: You do everything for everyone and no-one acknowledges it and it's often thrown in your face - not just by the kids but also by your partner
Disrespected: You and your partner aren't on the same page anymore (if you ever were). He doesn't respect your decisions, your parenting skills or style and because of that, the kids show you no respect
Uphill Battle: Things are getting worse, not better, and it doesn't seem to matter how hard you try or what you do
Lost yourself: You've given so much of your time and yourself to your bonus kids that there's nothing of you left - for your children, your friends or family, or for you (let alone your partner)
Your own kids are losing out: You treat all the kids the same but because your step children demand so much, your own children often are left out or lose out and sometimes, your partner leaves them out on purpose
Impacting all aspects of your life and who you are: You've given up plans with friends, work is compromised, you're failing your own children and you don't even know if it's worth it anymore
There's one rule for his kids and one rule for your kids: You're not a team and your kids feel different, they feel left out and when you bring it up, you are the one causing trouble
Walk in the Park: You knew it wouldn't be easy, but you didn't think it would be this hard
High Conflict Ex: The mother(s) of his children creates more drama and conflict than Cyclone Tracey
You love him: He's your soulmate, the love of your life, and it's breaking your heart because you just don't know if you can do it anymore
There’s how you dreamt it would be …
There’s how it actually is …
