Having a blended family can be a hard task to handle. Co-parenting is no easy task. You have to maintain a family discipline that works for all parents involved. Including the others that aren't in your household everyday. When you have babies and teenagers it is even tougher. I would like to take a deeper. Look as a younger mother dealing with two teenage step daughters and two toddlers. The respect issues with the teens. The discipline with the toddlers and how it all fits together. I have read books and done research on how to manage my situation. My husband is 38 and I am 26. There are plenty of day to day issues we deal with. I would like to help other women in my situation so that maybe they can see what their options are and can decide what best works for them.
