Great Answers to Difficult Questions about Adoption: What Children Need to Know by Fanny Cohen Herlem
Children who find out they are adopted have many questions that are difficult for a parent to answer. This book explores children's thoughts and feelings and provides parents with guidance on hoe to respond to difficult questions.
The author covers all the common questions that children ask and provides sensitive, candid answers in a way that children will be able to understand and relate to. Each chapter is devoted to a particular issue, such as why a child is adopted, who the child's birth parents are, and what happens when the child grows up. The book recognises the emotions and reactions of everyone in the family and includes separate conclusions for parents and children.
This handy guide offers useful advice for parents and will also be of interest to counsellors and other professionals working with children.
