The topic rationale should answer the following questions:
1. What is your topic? Blended Family Counseling
2. Why did you select this topic? I have a blended family when I remarried. I have a older step daughter who resides with me along with my two daughters
3. How does this topic apply in multicultural counseling? Although my husband and I were both raised in African-American, Christian homes our parenting styles are quite different and it causes issues within our marriage. I am in the military and firmly believe that if you supply children with the necessary tools for success they should be able to take those tools and use them to their advantage.
My husband is a parent that I consider an enabler. He does not push his daughter to do anything outside of her comfort zone. He feels that in due time she will find her way in life while we put our lives on hold waiting. Based on the way my parents raised me, I firmly believe in raising children to become independent adults. My husband was raised to allow children to find their own way in life and hope for the best.
