Parental Blindness

with Ron Deal | January 16, 2019

In blended families, sometimes a stepparent notices a child's misbehavior and the biological parent doesn't. If the stepparent says something the biological parent might get defensive. This is a real trap because it pits you against one another as a couple. God intended parenting to be at least a two person team partly because we all have strengths, weaknesses, and blind spots. Put down your defensiveness and listen to each other.
