“Parenting Strategies for Adopted Children”
January 21, 2012 9-12:30 PM in Oakland, CA
RSVP to PACT
$40 for members/$50 for non-members
Parenting an adopted child is both the “same as” and incredibility “different than” parenting a child born to you. We will also address specific parenting theories and their usefulness and applicability to adoptive family life focusing on positive methods for discipline that are effective. We will explore practical strategies for issues like celebrating birthdays, planning vacations, changing schools, moving, divorce, graduation, rites of passage, holidays, adding or losing family members, and other normal life events that have special resonance for adoptive families. Audience participation will be encouraged with an emphasis on exploring specific family concerns.
