New videos are out!

First, Happy National Stepfamily Day to all the stepmoms and their families! Thank you for all you do to love and care for our children. We’re all brave pioneers in this day and age, navigating a very different world when it comes to parenting and marriage.

Did you know that 1,300 stepfamilies form every day? And that’s only counting the ones that make it legal. Just like single parent families, stepfamilies face unique challenges that put their stability and health at risk. We’d like to help create a cultural model that strengthens the connections between the two households, instead of drawing a stronger line in the sand.

Even if you’re not IN a stepfamily, you’re probably here because your life is intimately intertwined with your ex-partner’s second family….

We hope to inspire ALL of you to reach out and form a working relationship with the other household, because together, we form the living “nest” for our children. Let’s make it a cozy one. 🙂

  1. Awesome!! Well done, ladies :). Actually, the first brought tears to my eyes. Not sure why, maybe because that’s so out of reach for me and it’s such a beautiful thing to see? Thanks, Jen!!

  2. Fabulous job Jennifer and Carol! Loved the videos – mind if I post them on The Stepmom’s Toolbox?


  3. Awww, thanks, Jenna! I know you’ve made some strides in your relationship with the ex, so who knows? Maybe one day, there will be more of a element of friendship there…. It took us a while too and we had many steps back for every one we took forward.

    And thanks to you too, Peggy! Feel free to share anywhere (and that goes for everyone else too).
