Untying the Binds of Loyalty
About the Guest
Children in blended families really don't like having to choose between family members but they often feel like they have to. I think it's up to the adults to untie the loyalty knots that kids find themselves in. Give your kids permission to enjoy themselves in the other home. A mom might say, "Hey, have a great time at your stepmom's house this weekend." When she says that it really liberates her child's heart. To untie the loyalty knots for kids is to set them free to love.
Have you ever felt caught between two people you love? Stuck between a rock and a hard place?
