Interpreting Adopted Youth Behavior

Parenting an adopted child is both the same as, and incredibly different than parenting a child born to you. We will address specific parenting theories and their applicability to adoptive family life, with a focus on positive and effective discipline methods. When children exhibit challenging behaviors, parents can often become confused as they wonder whether the behavior has deeper meaning in the context of adoption. How do we balance teaching children appropriate behavior both at home and in public, while also giving them a voice to express their feelings about adoption, race and family? Join us for an exploration of research-based insights and practical guidance for adoptive parents. This webinar is for all members of the adoption constellation and adoption professionals.
