Getting the 'step' mix right
Strength and support: Heather Osborne.
Blending two families can be a joy, but
brings unique difficulties as well.
Often there is a grief process to be worked
through and it's important to understand
To facilitate the process, the Napier Fam-
ily Centre is running Strengthening Your
Stepfamily, a programme designed for
couples who are combining their families.
Blended families often have complex
issues so we decided to develop this six-week
course,'' says parenting education co-
ordinator Heather Osborne.
It's designed for couples so that they can
work together every step of the way on
issues such as building and strengthening
their own relationship as well as that of the
family as a whole, as well as looking at the
things that are unique to step-families.
Each family brings its own traditions,
beliefs and history to the table so we look at
building on those and incorporating new
traditions to the new family.''
The programme helps parents look at the
challenges they are facing such as grief, loss,
children's behaviour, discipline and
maintaining contact with the biological
parent and family members. Heather says
step-parents often get a bad rap'', being
seen negatively -- for example the evil step''
-- and it is helpful for parents to hear, in a
group situation, that they are not alone.
Most step-parents try really hard to
make a family work,'' she says.
This course raises awareness around
what people bring to the new family and
developing ways of understanding
everybody's need and the complexities of
this kind of family.
We find people are really hungry for this
information and support and it's great for
them to be able to talk about the realities
and learn to work together.''
The Strengthening Your Stepfamily
course begins on Wednesday, May 25, from
7pm till 9.30pm, for six weeks.
Places are limited so be quick.
The Napier Family Centre offers a range
of parenting courses during school terms
and recently developed a programme to help
women who are suffering from post-partum

Swell takes surfers by surprise

Hawke's Bay Surfing Cham-
pionships at Waimarama on
Small conditions had been
predicted prior to the compe-
tition, but organisers were
pleasantly surprised as con-
ditions improved during the
The under-18 final was a dis-
play of quality surfing with the
lead changing a number of times
between Jordan Dyer and Ian
Wessels. Dyer posted the single
highest wave score in the final,
but Wessels answered back with
a strong backhand floater fol-
lowed by a couple of good turns
to take the win.
Troy Riley became the 2011
open men's champ by pulling off
a critical backhand floater and
then a combination of
manoeuvres on his last wave of
the final to take the title.
Results. U-18 boys': 1 Ian
Wessels; 2 Jesse Trafford; 3 Jor-
dan Dyer; 4 Logan Owen.
Open Men's: 1 Troy Riley, 2
