ABSTRACT

The current research enhances the understanding of transition day for researchers and clinicians who focus on marriage and family issues. A qualitative study involving 13 members (parents) of various stages of stepfamily development and demographics, is assessed. Interviews included questions for parents in a blended family and focused transitional day specific questions. By gaining a more in-depth understanding of transitional days in stepfamilies, immediate assistance may be provided to families who encounter difficulties during various stages of stepfamily/blended family formation. Useful approaches for current stepfamilies and future stepfamilies are discussed. Lastly, a new term is coined by the authors: “Transition Daze”.
