Reconciliation: Making the First Move

with Ron Deal | March 31, 2020

I know a stepmom who has good relationships with most of her stepchildren, but she and her stepdaughter are stuck. So first, she decided to cut her stepdaughter a break and realize that not everything she does is personal. Second, she needs to set firm boundaries. And third, she needs to forgive her stepdaughter for a few things so she can make the first move towards reconciliation. Why her? Because when your backs are turned the first person responsible to turn back around is always you.
