A refreshingly positive

and practical approach

to parenting

Parents of adopted children face some unique

challenges in addition to all the “regular”

issues that come with being a parent. Parenting

Your Adopted Child provides helpful

tools that enable families to understand and

counter common myths about adoption that

may be harmful to their children. It also

clearly demonstrates how parents can effectively

tailor their parenting approach to suit

their child’s distinct needs.

Written by a renowned pediatrician who

specializes in helping adopted children and

their families, Parenting Your Adopted Child

answers 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 bond with my newborn?
