How the Emotion Code Technique can Help Resolve Conflict within Blended Family Households

Juanita Ecker


Step relationships are often complicated, but that doesn’t mean they can’t work. The key to a successful step-family is to understand the unresolved emotions behind your situation and learn how to release them. The Emotion Code Technique is one way of doing this because it helps you release these feelings, resolve past traumas and let go of deeper issues that may be getting in the way of your relationship.

When a parent remarries and adds stepchildren to the family, it can be difficult for current birth siblings. They may feel jealous of the new family and want their parent’s attention. They may also feel like they have to compete for their birth parent’s love or time. Siblings often don’t get along with each other because they’re used to having more one-on-one time with their mom or dad; now there are other people who are getting in on that action! Sometimes these feelings of jealousy can lead to conflict between step-siblings, which isn’t good news at all if you’re trying hard not only to rebuild trust but also to create new memories together as a family unit (especially if this is your first go at being part of one).

The Emotion Code Technique helps dissolve negative emotions such as jealousy, so everyone feels safe enough around each other again— which means less arguing overall!

Step-sisters and step-brothers carry the emotional weight of their family dynamic.

On another note, step-siblings may also have complicated relationships and often harbor resentment for the other child or children.

Step-siblings may feel jealous of their birth parent’s love for the other child, especially if they are older than their step-brother or sister. They may be resentful of their step-siblings because they are possessive of their birth parent while growing up together in this blended family household.

Step-parents may struggle with setting boundaries with their children.

Step-parents often find themselves in a difficult position when it comes to setting boundaries with their step-children. They may feel that they need to be friends with their children, but at the same time, they want them to respect them as an authority figure. This can lead to confusion and frustration on both sides of the equation.

Birth parents may also struggle with this issue because they worry that if they set too many boundaries or make demands of their kids, it will hurt their relationship with them or cause resentment between family members. It’s important for parents who have remarried not only for themselves but also for their children’s sake (and peace) that these fears are addressed head-on — and promptly.

Sometimes these strained relationships in blended families continue even when the children have grown into adults. The once child, now adult, just doesn’t like the step-parent. We can work on the relationship even if you are no longer living in the same household. That way, when you have to interact with that person, the dynamics will have changed.

Understanding and releasing emotions can help you get along better with step-siblings, step-parents, and step-kids who are part of your blended family household.

Unresolved, negative emotions can be a source of conflict in blended family households. The Emotion Code Technique is a powerful technique that helps you understand and release negative emotions in your body that cause tension in your relationships. Can you imagine no longer having your buttons pushed every time you interact with a particular family member?

Find out what’s blocking your ability to create the life you want by identifying and releasing these trapped emotions, so you can move forward with confidence and clarity. Not to mention the harmony you’ll finally experience in your relationships. 

It can be challenging for blended families to navigate conflicts and disagreements. The good news is that you can deal with these situations more effectively.
