Do you guys think that every major change will result in taking a step back?
For instance, BD and BM divorce. As the child is beginning to come to terms, one of the parents meets someone new. Around the time the child is beginning to accept the new person, the parent moves in with their new beau. Child adjusts to that and then the parent marries. While the child is settling into the family, the parent announces that a baby is on the way.
Do you think that with every big change the parent should expect their child to “take a step back,” and prepare for a possible negative response?
