Adoptive parents will find information and advice on preparing for placement, bonding with an adopted child, transracial and international adoptions, coping with a child’s health or learning problems, and much more. Appendices present lists of adoptive parenting organizations in the U.S. and Canada, adoption-friendly mental health resources, children’s health organizations, and pediatric and educational advocacy groups. Titles in Barron’s Parenting Keys offer help to moms and dads by focusing on challenges specific to modern family structures and today’s social environment. Bringing up kids today is different—and in many ways more challenging—than it was in past generations. The revised and updated editions of Parenting Keys speak to today’s parents with solid advice and answers to today’s problems.
