Big Mistake 3: Blendering

with Ron Deal | March 19, 2020

Blendering is my made-up word for what couples do to force their blended family to blend. Blenders collide ingredients with intense force until they are combined. That works for making a smoothie but it's not helpful when you're dealing with children. Like expecting deep love and affection to develop quickly. That kind of pressure usually backfires. Keep Crockpot expectations. Ingredients will warm up to one another slowly. Blendering in blended families is a blunder you don't want to make.
