    1 thought on “Parenting Your Adopted Older Child: How to Overcome the Unique Challenges and Raise a Happy and Healthy Child

    1. This book was highly recommended on several adoption book lists. My opinion is rather mixed.Who should read it - those who want to adopt an older child and want a rather frank awareness of potential challenges they may face. Those who are adopting from the US.Who shouldn't bother to read it - those who have already read a number of older child adoption books. It doesn't present anything new. Those who are adopting internationally; while the book does contain one chapter on international adoption [...]

    2. I'm a therapist that has recommended chapters of this book to my clients. I am also hopefully a future adoptive parent. I thought this book was informative on a variety of different topics that those who adopt older children face.

    3. Notes to myself:-)*Good explanation of why there may be a sense of entitlement. *Also some good information regarding counseling and how the children should not be encouraged to attach to the counselors.

    4. This woman has obviously had some bad experiences with adoptive children. However she makes it seem as though all adoptive children are untrustworthy and will act out negatively. There are better books out there. Read those instead.

    5. Much of this didn't apply to my unique situation, but enough did to make it a worthwhile read. It was nice to have some validation of some of the issues I'm stuck in the middle of.

    6. Good, but sometimes seemed stereotypical about men. Also, the example stories seemed more "inspired by real stories" than what actually happened.
