New product for stepmoms

Hey guys, I'm thinking of creating a new product for stepmoms. It’s a blended family journal to help cultivate positive thinking, invest in personal growth, mindfulness and gratitude. The journal provides a safe space to capture blended family memories, the good and the bad, on a weekly basis with thought-provoking prompts. What are your first thoughts?

Hey @ginaw, Question: why are you thinking of this for stepmoms? Aside from that, I might consider looking into situationally based family guided journals. For example, if someone in the family was diagnosed with cancer or if a family has to move to a new town.

@99smallproblems The idea came to life mainly because I'm a stepmom and there is not much out there specifically for stepmoms or stepparents. You'll find many (keepsake) journals for moms and their kids with specific questions and prompts directed to that (ea. when I was pregnant, when you were born, your first words, first time you said mom etc). As a stepmom those things don't apply and can be a little awkward. However, there is a whole other dynamic that does, like meeting your stepkids for the first time, how you got to know each other and the challenges there are with coparenting etc.

@ginaw I wouldn't separate your idea for stepmoms too. Taking it as a whole family situation with similar problems and solutions may work better. Is what you suggest kinda live journal thing?

@astghik_azaryan Thank for your reply, I responded to @99smallproblems above about why it's specifically for stepmoms. It would be a physical journal if that's what you're referring too.

@ginaw, I have never been a stepmom, so you know better how it all is. It's just, I think is even if the stepmom is not the biological mom, there is no need to separate in this case her from the family. I mean no matter what, they are the family members, a team and the perception needs to be that way. Thanks anyway for stepping out with this issue :)
