While Kaela is nearly a grown up, having recently turned 18 and started working at her first job, Kandi is still concerned that she’ll do something to mess up the happy family dynamic they’re all enjoying at the moment.
“Todd is a lot sterner than I am, and he feels like I'm not stern enough. We are still trying to find our happy medium,” she says of the difficulties of blending her household with Todd’s. “
While Kandi and Todd’s parenting styles may differ, Kandi says she’s trying her best to make the home a happy and harmonious place for everyone who lives there.
Admitting she was nervous about having Kaela move in, Kandi says, “Kaela is 18 and I want to build a good relationship with her. I never want her to feel like I'm the wicked step mom. I'm scared to put too many rules on her in fear of her feeling like I'm being too harsh, but there still have to be rules.”
Bringing together two families may not be the easiest task, but it sounds like Kandi is definitely off to a good start!
