Developmental Stages, is one of a four part workshop series: Talking With Children About Adoption. Wondering where you come from and how you became a part of your family is a healthy part of identity development. It is critical that adoptive parents understand that this healthy, natural curiosity, is a part of understanding ones self. Most children who knows they are adopted wonders about the answers to the questions above, in addition to many others that are focused on their adoption. One of the challenges parents face is how to both be age appropriate and honest.

In this 4 hour workshop we will cover:

  • How to prepare for and answer questions children will have about their adoption journey.
  • The importance of parents planting a seed at any age about difficult topics~When and how to talk about what topics.
  • When is the worst age for a child to discover hard information about their adoption.

This workshop is appropriate for adoptive parents, waiting parents, birth/first parents and professionals.
