In this episode of the Nacho Kids Podcast, Lori, co-founder of Nacho Kids, interviews Bobbi Wilcox - founder of Blended Families United and author of “Reconciled - A Story of Divorce, redemption, and A Blended Family United”.  Bobbi is not a stepmom but has witnessed blending through her husband being a stepdad to her children. Bobbi and her husband also have a child together. Bobbi dealt with some issues with her bio kids and her ex-husband, who she refers to as her “wasband”, when he and his new partner spoke negatively about her and downplayed her as a mom. Needless to say, this greatly impacted her kids. Over time, Bobbi and her “wasband” were able to reconcile and have a good co-parenting relationship. Bobbi’s story is a very unique one and we are thankful for her sharing her story with us and our listeners.    In this episode, we discuss: The bio kids stop coming for visitation The ex speaking negatively about the other bio parent Reconciling with the ex and mending the co-parenting relationship Bobbi’s unique definition of a blended family Hurt that comes from a blend not working    
In this episode of the Nacho Kids Podcast, Lori, co-founder of Nacho Kids, interviews stepmom Sabrina. Sabrina is a stepchild herself and has been blending for seven years. She has two stepsons ages 15 and 13. Sabrina and her husband have a very high conflict bio mom. The high conflict bio mom absconded with the stepkids and blocked Sabrina and her husband (bio dad) from contacting them. This bio mom was also very abusive to bio dad during their marriage. We all know the stress from the blend can be overwhelming and Sabrina is proof of that! She was hospitalized for a week due to what ended up being stress from the blend.    In this episode, we discuss: Parental Alienation Dealing with an extremely high conflict and narcissistic bio mom Stress from the blend Bio mom banning stepmom from her state Deciding when to not fight bio mom anymore   Rate & Review Our Podcast Please rate and review our podcast on iTunes and Stitcher.

**Disclaimer: This episode may not be suitable for children, or some adults, as molestation is the main topic discussed.**   In this episode of the Nacho Kids Podcast, Lori and David, co-founders of Nacho Kids, interview a stepdaughter from Illinois. “Stepdaughter” became a stepkid at 18 months old. She had two older stepbrothers. One of which molested her from the age of eight years old until around the age of 14 years old. She never told her dad about the molestation, but recently confided in her mom. As you can imagine, the stepdaughter’s childhood was taken from her because of the actions of her stepbrother. Stepdaughter still lives with her dad and stepmom, so, unfortunately, she still sees her abuser at times.  Not too long ago, the stepbrother decided to ask her if she remembered “how much fun they had as kids” and would she want to do it again. We were shocked, and proud, to learn that stepdaughter didn’t believe this most recent unpleasant encounter with the stepbrother was a set back in the progress she had previously made in therapy. This was a very touching interview with stepdaughter. It was so great to hear her be able to laugh and cut up with us despite the struggles she’s endured. In fact, I don’t know that we have ever laughed so much with a guest. We thank her for sharing her story with us and you, and we will continue to cheer her own as she attempts to heal from this horrible experience.    In this episode, we discuss: Being treated differently than the other kids Being molested by a step-sibling The fear of telling what happened The struggles to overcome the past When the past raises it’s ugly head Having a daughter that is also a stepdaughter   Rate & Review Our Podcast Please rate and review our podcast on iTunes and Stitcher.

**Disclaimer: This episode may not be suitable for children, and could be a trigger for some adults, as suicide is the main topic of discussion and rape is also mentioned.** In this episode of the Nacho Kids Podcast, Lori and David, co-founders of Nacho Kids, interview founder of “The Starving Stepmom” - LauraBeth Ferguson. She is also co-author of “Daily Bread for The Starving Stepmom” with Melanie Anthony. LauraBeth was a single mom for eight years. She was raised in a blended family and she thought her experience as a stepchild would be beneficial when she married a military man with full custody of his own kids. As many stepmoms do, LauraBeth jumped in full force in the “mom” role. And also as many bio parents do, her husband wanted her to be “mom” to his kids in all ways except for when it came to disciplining them. As the stepkids caregiver, while her husband was deployed, the stepdaughter accused LauraBeth of abuse. This accusation and things that resulted from it eventually led to the unthinkable… LauraBeth tried to commit suicide. Thankfully, she was unsuccessful and now shares her story in hopes of helping others.   In this episode, we discuss: Being raised in a blended family Bonds with stepparents Being a full-time stepmom Being the target of the stepkid’s lies LauraBeth’s suicide attempt and recovery Warning signs of suicide to watch for  Having a plan when suicidal thoughts try to creep in Rate & Review Our Podcast Please rate and review our podcast on iTunes and Stitcher.

I don't appreciate the blame on the school system for kids not having common sense to be prepared to be on their own. that's a parenting problem!

I’m loving your podcasts & really trying to decide if I need to join the academy. However, I know for a fact I have more of a husband problem than kid problem. Our marriage has a lot of issues, outside of the kids.
