Why is she so alone at home?
StepFamilies do best when they do not try to include the stepparents, stepchildren, and stepsiblings in all activities. This is different from original families where family cohesion is the goal.
Everyone gets left out more in a stepfamily than in an original family. This is one of the hardest realities for stepfamilies to adjust to. With expert support, there are helpful ways to handle separateness, build couple strength, and to grieve the loss of the fantasy of being in a nuclear family.
