Omamma had this to say about this morning’s Disengaging post:
Wondering who has a yours, mine, and ours blend and how disengagement worked for that situation…
I am facing the beginning of disengagement and have two biokids, one with DH. How do I strike a balance that is right for everyone?
As a stepmum without my own kids, I’m not exactly the oracle here.
Does anyone have advice or personal accounts to offer Omamma, and anyone else who might be wondering about disengaging in a stepfamily that includes mutual kids and/or your own kids from a previous partnership? (Often called a “complex” stepfamily.)
Did you try disengaging in your complex stepfamily? How did it go?
