September 16 - National Step Family Day

What Is National Step Family Day?

Over 30-percent of the United States’ under-18 population live in a stepfamily environment. Blended families work together to create stable, happy, and functional home environments and family interaction. Stepparents, siblings, and extended family members are pitched in unique and complicated situations – and make it work. Divorces, deaths, or other events can create a stepfamily – and that means two families blending beautifully into one. For those who manage to make it happen, a stepfamily can be just as valuable, if not more, than a biological family, and many see their stepfamilies as huge blessings in their life. Though it takes a lot of work, patience, and kindness, it is possible to have a healthy and thriving stepfamily. On National Stepfamily Day we recognize the efforts of stepparents, siblings and extended family to ensure children love and happiness abound in blended family situations.
