Challenges faced by blended families pt. 2

LETS TALK RELATIONSHIPS WITH THE ZWANES: Challenges faced by blended families.

Blended families, or stepfamilies, are now common in the United States. Nearly half of marriages in the United States end in divorce. At least half of children in the U.S. live with a biological parent and a stepparent. This person might also be called a "bonus" parent.

Bringing two parents and their children together can be challenging. Children may be used to different parenting styles and family routines. Visitation or conflict between separating parents can cause stress. Conflict between stepparents and parents that live outside the new family can also increase stress. Another point of potential conflict is any new stepsiblings. It can take time for children to adapt to the new family structure. It may help to speak with a therapist about the transition before it begins.

PRASA says no more trading and praise singing on their new trains.

No more gospel on the tracks, as new Prasa rules raise the ire of train traders and preachers

While the Passenger Rail Agency of South Africa (Prasa) and the Department of Transport forge ahead with efforts to recover train corridors following the collapse of the rail network, Prasa has instituted new train rules — which have not met with universal approval.

The most contested of Prasa’s new rules are the prohibition of trading and preaching aboard the new trains. Trading and preaching on trains have been a part of commuters’ lives for decades. Many informal traders who had hoped that the return of train services would revive their businesses were left disappointed by the new rules.

ATM to challenge Ramaphosa's application for a review of Sec. 89 report.

The African Transformation Movement (ATM) said it would be challenging President Cyril Ramaphosa's application for a review of the Section 89 committee report that found he may have violated the Constitution.

The president approached the apex court for it to set aside the panel's report on the theft of millions in foreign currency from his Phala Phala farm.

The panel found that the president may have violated anti-corruption laws, saying there was prima facie evidence of a deliberate intention not to investigate the crime committed on the farm openly.
