So for those of you with blended families (<----what's the correct term?) whether that be with foster children or adoptive and bio kids, how do your parenting styles differ between children? From before and after you adopted, etc? Why did they change or why not? I'm full of questions today, aren't I?
Knowing that our adoptive children have to learn to trust us, have possibly experienced a completely different kind of life before our family, is it important to parent them differently OR do you change your parenting style for the whole family? I'm bringing my daughter home in a couple of months--I need help, folks!
What's your parenting style? What works and doesn't?
Here's a link to a video and the Empowered to Connect website, featuring Dr. Karyn Purvis. (I know you've heard of her!) Listen to what she has to say and tell me what you think.
Should I Parent My Adopted Child Differently Than My Birth Children? There are plenty of other excellent videos and resources there, too.
Oh yeah, leave a comment and I'll draw a name to win one of my tee shirts!
