We all make mistakes in blended families, and it’s important to learn how to grow and move past them. It’s never too late to start over. Some common mistakes we make in our family relationships are

  • Thinking you’re always right
  • Trying to change someone
  • Pleasing others at the expense of yourself
  • Expecting others to know what we want
  • Not managing anger
  • Not giving ourselves time
  • Neglecting relationships
  • Feeling guilty

 

Three steps for successfully fixing a mistake are

  1. Acknowledge the mistake
  2. Apologize for the mistake
  3. Learn and grow from the mistake

In honor of Mother’s Day, I am joined with Ami Brown, who is Shawn’s ex wife. We talk about all kinds of things, such as

 

  • Her personal story
  • What it was like when we met
  • Jealousy, and why it’s not helpful
  • Her advice for bio moms
  • Lessons she learned over the years
  • Some listener questions
  • Her career

 

Ami is an inspiring woman and a true example of what it should look like to be a bio mom in a blended family. My hope is that her story (and ours together) helps to inspire others to create a peaceful family.
