I am happy to share that I've been extremely busy with presenting several mental health trainings in the last month! Unfortunately, that means less time to work on blogs and videos so I apologize to those who have submitted questions for the Ask The Therapist series and who have been waiting on their answers.
This video answers the question: Should step-parents be the disciplinarian to their step-children? I've seen several families working through this topic and think it is an excellent question for that reason.
Here are the extra resources I mention in the video:
