In the 21st Century, life in a stepfamily has rapidly become the norm for many people, as parents remarry, creating many different forms of ‘extended family’. But do we really know how to make the stepfamily work as a unit; is the reality of the stepfamily one of unnecessary tensions and strife?
In Stepfamilies we find troubled families and bring in a Family Counsellor to help each and every family member find happiness and harmony with each other.
There are hundreds of reasons why there might be tension within a stepfamily unit – and the causes are
not always obvious…
Within the show, the counsellor takes each family member through various discussions and scenarios, then sets
them tasks – both as individuals and as a group – to help them find the path to constructive future relationships and a happy family unit!
