The step relationship requires special care and cultivating. As long as you recognize that connecting with your stepson/stepdaughter doesn't happen automatically, and there are some things to look out for, you can begin to develop a great relationship with him or her! Here are some tips for connecting:

• The best rule of thumb is to go slowly. Understand that you will need to invest time in the step relationship; expecting instant results is not only unreasonable, but is likely to backfire and create more problems. Begin by building a positive and caring relationship, and be sure to allow for the parent and child to have their own time together outside of the step relationship, too.
