Parenting At-Risk Children
You can't impart what you don't possess. Today leading expert in developmental psychology, Karyn Purvis, talks to parents about parenting their adopted children. Karyn exhorts parents to heal their personal wounds and losses before adopting and not to expect their children to fill those gaps for them. Parents, Purvis says, have to come to their children as a blank slate, realizing that all they've previously known about parenting may not apply to these special children.
