Wise adoptive parenting intends to be a resource to adoptive parents when the troublesome behavior of their children puts family life on edge. By way of conversation and illustration, this book offers a deeper understanding of difficult adoptive challenges with attachment as well as practical recommendations for adoptive parenting methods, when more usual parenting approaches don't work.
Words from Jaco J. Hamman PhD who teaches at Vanderbilt University School of Divinity:
Ron Nydam weaves threads of relinquishment, adoption, and parenting challenges into a practical, honest tapestry, rich with love, worth, and belonging. Adoptees and their two sets of parents receive voice and will feel understood and empowered. Families will discover new ways to be together and caregivers will gain clinical insight. Acceptance, respect, and care expose toxic expectations, and suffocating secrets that are harmful to adoptive development.
