Looking for tips, tricks, advice, do's/dont's for the start of a blended family. Everything from how to discuss it with the kids- to what to expect or not to expect. If you could change something you did what would it be....books to read, websites?
Kids ages are 15 girl, 13 girl, 10 boy, 9 boy. 2300 sqft home 4 bedrooms 3.5 baths. Both parents work(dad shift work, mom M-F 8-4pm). 13 girl and 9 boy go with bio dad 4 days per month. Other kids mom passed 4 yrs ago. moms kid would have to change schools, same city but 30 min away.
Proposed arrangements would be boys share room and each girl has her own room. Move to occur in June. Figure we would have summer for initial adjustment period.
