What Can I Do to make 
Stepfamily Life More Livable?

Stepfamilies face unique challenges most nuclear families simply don't, such as:

  • Role ambiguity
  • Intrusive exes & stepkids
  • Confusing or conflicting priorities
  • Mixed emotions about "ours babies"
  • Stepparent/Parental Alienation
  • Unequal power & control
  • Outsider Syndrome
  • Stepmom/stepparent stigma
  • High-conflict household dynamics
  • A need to step away or disengage
  • Absent or weak boundaries
  • Extreme guilt or shame

The Ultimate Stepfamily Summit:
September 14, 15 & 16

You deserve unprecedented access to a select group of trusted experts with firsthand knowledge of stepfamily life's hiccups and heartaches. Having been in your shoes, our presenters launched their practices with a mission to help others navigate the challenges, dynamics and stressors unique to families like ours. 

Back in the day? There were no role models to follow. There were no books or magazines on the topic. There were no programs or seminars to enroll in. In short, there was nowhere to turn for answers we desperately needed. Now that there is, give yourself (and your loved ones) the "Ultimate" gift. Register today!

What makes our event
The Ultimate Stepfamily Summit?

We'll let our happy attendees answer that one!

"The comment about a child-free stepmom feeling there is no one in their corner and (having) a great sense of loneliness because of this is so true. I am also very close to niece and nephews and a total fur-baby mom. I feel like this presentation was written for me. Finally, how I feel was put into words. Thank you so much!" - Heather


Your Ultimate Stepfamily Summit was a Game Changer!

I just can’t say enough good things about this summit! I’ve been raving about it to my husband and even had him sit down to listen to some of the replays with me. It really has been a game changer and has helped me look at many of the challenges and emotions I/we face in our stepfamily life with a new perspective.

Thank you SO much to all of the speakers and to Claudette Chenevert! Please keep this going every year! 


I've Learned a Lot & Gained New Perspective

Thank you so very much for hosting this stepfamily summit! I greatly enjoyed these few days with everyone. I appreciate you, team and all of the speakers for sharing valuable information that is insightful and helpful. Although I have been a stepmom for 13 years and have an abundance of experiences to relate to these topics (some more than others), as well as strategies to utilize, I truly have learned a lot and gained new perspectives; tools to further assist me throughout my journey. I am looking forward to future summits!


The World So Needs More Wonderful People Like You!

This is a wonderful gift for sure.❤️ I cannot thank everyone involved enough for caring to share everything you have learned along your own relationship journeys, giving myself and others in need the treasure of not having to do this difficult life situation alone.
💖This world so needs more wonderful people like all of you!!!
The wonderful gift of knowledge and sharing that knowledge with others - Wisdom.
Thank you!

On a Personal Note 
by Claudette Chenevert
Host, Producer, Presenter

Having been a stepparent for 30+ years, let me tell you: I get how hard it can be! My two stepdaughters are adults now and so is my son, whom my husband helped raise as his stepdad. Sure, some aspects of stepfamily life get easier, but the challenges never end.

I created The Ultimate Stepfamily Summit with YOU in mind—plain and simple—with a goal of helping you ride out the ups and downs of stepfamily life with greater knowledge, resources and grace.

Thanks for stopping by and be sure to say "Hi!" while attending the 3rd Ultimate Stepfamily Summit.
