Parenting is tough work but the challenges increase exponentially for those in blended families. Family therapist Lisa MacMartin knows first hand the challenges step-parents face so she has set up a support group that will begin meeting on September 15.
The Step-Moms’ Circle will take place for five Thursdays at the Sedona Centre, 5708 Monkland Ave., in N.D.G. MacMartin will lead the group through various discussions where they can share their struggles and successes. Topics will include setting boundaries between the step-mom and the ex-wife, dealing with feeling like an outsider in your own home, and other daily challenges. The cost is $75 until September 1 or $85 after that date.
