An adoption expert, therapist, and adoptive parent of seven older children provides a comprehensive guide to help readers overcome the unique challenges of parenting adopted older children, including bonding, culture shock, fetal alcohol syndrome, aggressive behaviours, loss, hyperactivity, and creating a sense of belonging. Parenting Your Adopted Older Child is the only book to address all of the challenges faced by the increasing number of parents who adopt children older than two years - from the U.S. or abroad - and provide them with proven ways to overcome common problems and develop healthy, loving relationships with their child. In supportive, easy-to-understand language, parents learn step-by-step how to identify their child's unique needs and wounds, create a supportive home environment, and develop the skills needed to ally with their child against each challenge.
