Our Families are our Tribe

Families are the backbone of our communities. Families come in all shapes and sizes – new couples creating their family unit, divorced and remarried couples redesigning their lives, adopted families, foster families, extended families, and families we choose by gathering close friends together.  

For families to thrive each individual needs to express their individual gifts and talents, be understood and honored, have a space they call their own, and contribute to the family unit.

Do you desire more synergy in your family relationships?

Do you wish your family unit worked together more smoothly - less upset, more teamwork?

Do you want to move from reactionary to responding to what comes your way?

Do you sometimes feel like it's tough to stay on track with your own goals when you are looking after so many other people?

Then Didi’s Korner is the place for you. 

Successful Families Take Intentionality

Every family is unique with different gifts, talents and needs. Creating a new family unit takes creativity, curiosity, acceptance of new ways of doing things, and lots of love.

Our Families are Our Tribe. Each member of the family has an inborn desire to feel like he or she has a place and belongs. It takes everyone in the family to make it work. And yet, each person often jumps on board the new family train at different times, in their own way and in their own time.
Every family blending two or more family units together goes through a series of stages and transitions to create a new family structure. Four of the most common stages are described below. Which stage are you in? Read on and see what you might be thinking about where you and your family are today.

The Four Blended Family Stages

Dream Stage: "Sure, our family has some problems, but we’re in love and it’s meant to be – our new family will sail through this, we can do this. Really? We got this!"

It Can’t Be True: "Gosh, this is harder than we thought! Maybe our love is not enough. All this upset is affecting our relationship and the kids...not exactly sure what to do... Maybe we need to get some help before everything falls apart."

Rally the Troops: "Oh Yeah! We need help with this blended family thing. It's not working. We're ready for something NEW!  We want some help to figure out what is best for our unique relationship and our unique family needs." 

We’re On Our Way: "We've gotten some new battle rhythms and ways to relate to  the kids and each other. It's getting under control! We want some back-up and a sanity check to keep it all going." 


Now, to find out just where you are...
You may experience any of the Four Stages at different times in the life-cycle of becoming a new family unit. Take Heart! You can do this! You just need the right kind of supports in place. 
Transition can feel like He$$ but it’s worth it!
