Blended families come in all shapes and sizes.
For example, you and your partner might both have children from a previous relationship, or one of you might be new to parenting.
Your children might be of similar or very different ages. Or you might have a child together.
Where children live also varies across families.
Some children might live with you some of the time, others might live with you most or all of the time, and others might visit only occasionally.
Different children might have different arrangements – for example, a teenage boy might be mostly at his dad’s, while his younger brother might be mostly at his mum’s.
