June Venters was invited to speak to BBC London, Vanessa Feltz about the role of step parents and their families today.  She highlighted the importance of families communicating and agreeing about important issues that will affect them both now and in the future such as, parental responsibility how this will be exercised by the step parent; inheritance – the importance of making a will because step children do not have the same “rights” of inheritance as birth children.  She recommended  how mediation could assist families to communicate about these and many other relevant areas and drew an analogy with pre nuptial agreements and how it is important for step families to agree how issues should be resolved in a controlled environment and before they occur to avoid disagreement and ill feeling and scope for confusion later.
