August is right around the corner, and Kids First
will be offering a session of our Kids First Program for Stepparents
on Saturday the 10th
. This program has a wealth of information about blending families that is helpful to both the biological parent and the stepparent, and we encourage couples to attend the program together.
Respectful communication is a must for any good relationship, and a local Yarmouth business, Kids on Time,
has developed an online tool to help parents living in different households to minimize conflict by using some online communication. We believe that much of the conflict that occurs between co-parents could be avoided if both parents had equal access and involvement in creating the family schedule, and therefore support this local company's excellent effort to address the problem. Much likeThe Family Wizard
only less cumbersome, less expensive, and developed by a couple who have faced the challenges of divorce and remarriage themselves, this tool offers a place for families to share calendars, schoolwork planners, medical information and much more.
Check it out for yourself.
They offer a free 30 day trial, and if you sign up with this code (2BA-C09-F62

, every month that you use it.
