Description

Join us for an exploration of connection-focused parenting skills with guest Sally Gradin, therapist, adoptive parent & parenting skills trainer

Why does parenting by adoption need special training? Because the path to parenthood includes twists and turns, just like the path to growing up...and kids who need a new family are bringing their history with them. Even when adoption happens at birth, or shortly after, you're meeting your child mid-stream and in the midst of growing. Adopting and fostering can bring a grab-bag of milestones and mysteries all at once! For kids with experience *not* getting their needs met or essential connections being broken...trust is definitely a skill that needs building.

We'll dive into how kids' emotions work, trauma-smart parenting, tools for making connections, setting limits, and surviving tantrums. These skills will help you build a relationship with your child now and through the school-age years.
