Stepfamily Central – Establishing Clear Boundaries in your Stepfamily
To protect our privacy and personal space, we all need to establish clear boundaries by being able to say no to certain requests that are too difficult for us to complete. Boundaries are important in all areas of life, at work, in friendships, but they are especially important in stepfamilies, since there are so many members involved, each with a different set of potential issues. Rachelle discusses how to establish clear boundaries with Jenna Korf, a certified Stepfamily Foundation coach who works with stepmoms and step-couples. Jenna is the co-author with Jennifer Newcombe Marine of a brand-new book, Skirts at War; Divorced Mom/Stepmom Conflict. In addition to her new book. Jenna writes a regular column for Stepmom Magazine and is a blogger for The Huffington Post and No One’s the Bitch. She lives in Ithaca, New York with her husband, two teenage stepsons and her adorable pup, Astro. You can find out more about Jenna by going to her website, stepmomhelp.com.
