On ‘Life Quakes’, host Jessica Reyes, Patricia Wu, and guest therapist Joann ‘JoJo’ Venant offers advice to a viewer struggling to merge holiday priorities in a blended family.

Be flexible and open to trying things differently in your new family dynamic. Prioritize what’s most important and be willing to let go of the rest.

Kids Have a Voice

Sometimes, conflict over the “perfect” holiday is symbolic of deeper anxieties about belonging and acceptance in a blended family.
