  • Confusing or conflicting priorities
  • Mixed emotions about "ours babies"
  • Stepparent/Parental Alienation
  • Unequal power & control
  • Outsider Syndrome

What makes our event
The Ultimate Stepfamily Summit?

We'll let our happy attendees answer that one!

Last summer, my fiance, my stepson and me travelled to the West Coast in the USA. My daughter was not with us as she left 3 years before to live with her father and I knew very little about her.

I was already following StepMom Magazine on Instagram and got in contact with Heidi Farrell, she invited me to join Stepfamily Summit last September.

I watched almost all the videos online. They were fascinating for me. I felt so validated about what was going in my stepfamily life and about what experts talked on the summit, about how to make steps to live better in a stepfamily and how to give ease and facilitate children's lives within that dynamic. It's not as easy as it seems.

I got to know Tracy Poizner there and as I struggled during years - and I mean really deeply struggled - about my teenager daughter, who had signs of "alienation", she could help me as Tracy is an expert on alienation.

So I got in contact with Tracy and in 8 months I had my daughter in Hungary in the motherly grandparents home. I had my daughter with me during a week after 3 years gap.

My daughter was like "nothing happened" and I was like "drinking of her presence", I can't find the right words what it meant to me, I was overflowed with love, I just can't stop watching at her, smell her, looking in her beautiful green eyes. WHAT A FLOW OF HAPPINESS. Thank you Tracy!!!

I have no words to express how grateful I am for the opportunity that I could be a participant of the Stepfamily Summit and for Claudette Chenevert for the organization.

I watched even the husband's video which gives an other aspect about stepfamily life. Men are usually more reserved about their personal life and less talkative in public about this topic. It requires a great courage to speak about such delicate issues knowing that so many people are listening and watching you. It's a big responsibility.

I hope this September we - members of stepfamilies, a huge amount of people - could learn again with Claudette on the Stepfamily Summit. I can't hardly wait it!! There will be a wild variety of answers for stepmoms and stepdads.

See you there!!

"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!

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 5th Annual Stepfamily Summit.
