Ron: Ron, we get married in a couple of months…and now my son gets angry?

Announcer: For FamilyLife Blended®, here’s Ron Deal.

Ron: Six years after Vali’s first husband died, she met a man and fell in love. Her son seemed fine with the idea…until he wasn’t. Vali wanted to know if his anger was manipulation. My reply? Maybe. First of all, it’s common for major family transitions like a wedding to resurrect grief in kids so this mom should at least slow down, listen to her son and moved toward him emotionally. He needs some reassurance.

But is he manipulative? Well, if he has a history than yeah, maybe. But if there’s no history of that, probably not. Either way, he needs a little TLC. For FamilyLife Blended I’m Ron Deal.
