Overview

Learn how to give your adopted child a positive, loving home

"Parenting Your Adopted Child is a welcome source of practical, useful parenting advice to parents and friends."
--Susan Caughman, editor and publisher, Adoptive Families magazine

Parents of adopted children face unique challenges in addition to all the "regular" problems other families must face. How much information about the adoption should you share with your family? Your neighbors? When should you start explaining adoption to your child, and how? Grounded in a refreshingly positive approach, Parenting Your Adopted Child provides helpful tools that enable you to understand and counter common myths about adoption that may be harmful to your child.

Chock-full of expert advice from a renowned pediatrician who specializes in adoption issues and a noted writer on adoption issues who is also the mother of an adopted child, Parenting Your Adopted Child clearly demonstrates how to tailor your parenting approach to suit your child's distinct needs. You'll find the answers to such common concerns as:

  • Why, when, and how do I explain adoption to my child and others?
  • How can I help my child deal with adoption at different stages of life?
  • How do I nurture a strong relationship between siblings?
  • How do I deal with family members who don't include my child?
  • How do I help my child deal with people who harbor negative views of adoption?
  • Does my child need a therapist and, if so, how do I find the right one?
  • How much should I tell my child's teachers?
