The Joys and Challenges of Being a Step Parent

On this week's podcast, Russ and Mika are talking about a subject that has been a formative part of their own parenting experience. Mika became a step parent to Russ' oldest daughter before they had their own children together. In many ways, the experience of becoming a step parent to Maddix taught Mika so much about children and informed many of her decisions as a traditional parent as well. We believe that step-parenting is a topic that is underrepresented in our culture and that many new stepparents struggle with what it means to become a parent to someone else's children. Spouses and significant others of step parents can also struggle with this transition as well. Today's podcast is all about bringing that experience to light.
