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?
