Who is a child’s disciplinarian or final decision maker in a blended marriage/family?


A blended marriage is one where both partners bring children from previous marriages to their new household. I’ve observed children being disciplined/ordered around by several family members in these cases. Stepparents, step grandparents, step uncles and aunts, and more, including step family members from several previous marriages, not just the current marriage/stepfamily. I feel sorry for these children with so many ‘bosses’ who often don’t agree with each other. How frustrating it must be for these children who aren’t to blame for the situation in any way.
