So demonstrates Patty Cogen, who for the past decade has studied the adjustment and development of internationally adopted children and advised their often-mystified adoptive parents. In Parenting Your Internationally Adopted Child, Dr. Cogen explains how and why to help a child cope with grief over the loss of everything and everyone familiar; tell the child's adoption story from the child's rather than the parents' point of view; understand the ways in which a child's development may begin at adoption; handle sleeptime, mealtime, and discipline problems; foster identity and independence in pre-teens and teens; and much more. With advice on language and school difficulties and the development of self-control and independence, Cogen guides adoptive parents from preparations for a child's arrival all the way through the teen years.
