  • TITLE: A Qualitative Analysis of New Norms on Transition Days in Blended Families

    AUTHORS: Charity Perry, Rick Fraser

    KEYWORDS: Stepfamily, Blended Family, Qualitative Research, Transition Day, Transition Daze

    JOURNAL NAME: Sociology Mind, Vol.10 No.2, March 26, 2020

    ABSTRACT: The current qualitative research study enhances the understanding of new norms on transition days for researchers and clinicians who focus on marriage and family issues among stepfamilies or blended families. Thirteen family members (biological parents, stepparents) who were in various stages of stepfamily formation were assessed. The current study explicated a main theme: New Norms. After further analysis, two subthemes emerged that families must navigate on transition day: Cohesive New Family and New Children. The researchers also describe the positives and negatives of new norms. By gaining a more in-depth understanding of the challenges blended families face during transition days, immediate assistance may be provided to families. The results of the study are applicable to any individual, clinician, or researcher who desires a deeper understanding of stepfamily narratives.
