Blended Family and Step-Parenting Tips with Dawn Krieger

Dawn Krieger is a wife, mom, and step-mom to a beautiful blended family and also a Transformational Life and Business Coach since 2010. 

Her career in service started as a Social Worker after graduating from Penn State University.

After six years, she began to get disenchanted with the system of change in place, which felt dis-empowering instead of empowering.

She realized that to be of service to others, she had to do her own work towards feeling empowered and ended up attending the University of Santa Monica to get her Masters in Spiritual Psychology.

She coaches men, women, young adults, business owners, business executives, doctors, and anyone open to being led back to their own personal wisdom and freedom.

Key Takeaways

  • Being a stepmother is a beautiful experience.
  • You experience internal chaos when you start a blended family because you put expectations on your relationships. 
  • Remind yourself that the chaos is only within you and to trust the process of your relationships. Not taking things personally is key.
  • Establish a great foundation with your partner so you are able to communicate well and set the proper boundaries.
  • When you believe your thinking is always true, there is no room for growth.
  • When you take care of yourself (like napping when you’re tired), you are able to see solutions and see how you are showing up to your relationships.
  • Looking to make big shifts can stifle your growth or ability to take action. Instead, just take a deep breath and think about the next step. Only focus on getting to the next step. That will build momentum.
 

Actionable Solutions

 How To Blend a Family

  • Take the pressure off that it has to be or feel perfect. Only focus on the kids feeling loved and nurtured by you.
  • Let it unfold naturally.
  • Don’t take your kid’s behavior personally. Their behavior has nothing to do with you. They are processing and experiencing their own lives. 
 

How To Change Your Thought Process

  • Become suspicious about your thinking. 
  • Where is that thought leading you? Is it leading you closer to your truth or farther away from it?
  • Continue looking in the direction of your truth.
 
 

Hardest Decision

  • Leaving her first husband when her daughter was a year and a half.

How You Keep Your Sex Life Alive

  • Short getaways to keep refueling the relationship. Having conversations about how to keep things playful between them.

Most Excited About

  • Letting her coaching practice become whatever it’s supposed to become. There is a lot of possibility in uncertainty.
