The Adoption Parenting Toolbox examines the core issues each member of the adoption triad faces, and how that affects standard parenting challenges like sleeping through the night, discipline and attachment. It also covers specific challenges families have faced – children who’ve experienced alcohol exposure in utero, abuse, neglect, family separation, sensory disorders, learning delays and many other issues – and how you can help them work through the trauma they’ve experienced prior to their journey to you.

Edited by Jean MacLeod and Sheena Macrae

With more than 500 pages, the Adoption Parenting Toolbox offers a wealth of information for the newly arrived home family and the experienced family as well. More than 100 contributors  helped publisher EMK Press weave a stunning tapestry of advice specifically for adoptive parents. Raising children who’ve been adopted requires parenting with extra preparation and attention and this book helps parents understand where that extra layer falls. Although this is a book you won’t read all at once, you will come back to it from time-to-time as your child’s awareness of who they are develops, and as your understanding of how to help them increases.

Children who’ve been adopted or fostered come to us from loss – loss of a birth family, culture and language. There are helpful ways to address these issues, and the Adoption Parenting Toolbox builds awareness to do just that. The book also explores stumbling blocks to good parenting, as well as standard parenting practices that aren’t always right for children who’ve experienced trauma.
