  1. Communicate with all the members of the blended family

    Communication is the key to any happy family. If there are any problems, take your time to listen. As the head of the family, you need to be on top of everything that happens in the house.

  2. Play games together

    Since everyone likes to have fun, games are a great way to help create a stronger bond with the blended family. Make this a routine by designating a certain day of the week to play games together. Find some group games and relax with your family. If you need to make teams, make sure the teams are mixed.

  3. Write down all the daily chores

    Use a blackboard to write down all the daily chores and the names of the people responsible to do them. This helps avoid arguments when it comes to cleaning, shopping or taking out the trash. Share the tasks equally.

  4. Give small rewards

    Offer rewards to anyone who respects the rules and completes the assigned chores. This is a great motivational tool and does not require a lot of money.
