This week in class we discussed blended families and some of the challenges that come from them. I really enjoyed that Sister Williams was able to come in and talk to us. I think it is really neat that she and Brother Williams were able to make it work. It scared me to think that there are so many challenges that come when a family is blended together, from the inlaws to the legal stuff to the relationships that need to be dealt with and may be damaged. I thought it was very interesting when we had Corbin go up and on the board draw the relations that may happen when two families are blended to together. Mom and Dad need to make sure that everyone is included in decisions so that no one feels left out. Good communication is also key in figuring out little quirks.
