Parents are the pacesetters and emotional touchpoints in the home. If children do not have good emotional regulation, it does not make sense to give them the freedom to set the emotional tone for the home

Parents are the pacesetters and emotional touchpoints in the home. If children do not have good emotional regulation, it does not make sense to give them the freedom to set the emotional tone for the home. Like music that has the accent on the first beat, parents accent the beginning of emotional interactions. Young children with anxiety often respond well to visual sequences of events. Small pictures of daily events may be drawn out on felt, and arranged on a larger piece of felt.

My husband and I were at wits end with our foster (now adoptive) child. At the age of (just turned) 3, she had purposefully broken 3 windows and our home was alarmed better than Fort Knox because she would continually try to escape at all hours of the day or night. We were exhausted and afraid, because if a 3 year old could do this to us, what would we do with her when she got older? We were completely baffled by her behavior and her reactions to us. And for the record, we have 3 older bios and one younger adoptive who are all well behaved, well adjusted, happy kids. We are good parents.

Then during a completely pure chance, business related meeting, I shared with a colleague who was also a foster/adoptive parent what my husband and I were going through. He urgently recommended this book explaining that it had brought his family back from the edge in a similar situation.

I bought the book and proceeded to cry through the first half. My daughter finally made sense. Better yet, the author had suggestions that were implementable that day. Because our daughter was still a foster child at the time, the possibility of professional help was, unfortunately, delayed due to bureaucracy. But the book was so clear with practical advice on how to handle different issues you can come across when dealing with attachment issues that we were able to start literally that day with trying to help her. Plus, frankly, being able to just understand why she was acting the way she was, was a godsend.

Two months later, when we were finally able to get her into see a behavioral psychologist, I almost felt embarrassed because she had improved so much. The escape behavior was gone, the frantic grabbing had been reduced significantly, the defiance was greatly reduced and constant, demanding need to be the center of attention had relaxed. We still went because we still have a long way to go, but my daughter now comes to me when she is upset and she looks to me for comfort. I feel like she sees me as mom.

The recommendations in the book are not easy. They require time and energy... a lot of time and energy. But they work. And when you are at your wit's end and nothing else has worked, the time and energy don't matter.

I would recommend this book for anyone who is currently having problems within their adoptive or foster placement. I would not recommend this book for someone in the process of becoming a foster or adoptive parent. Not all children who are placed have attachment issues and some of the stories in the book may cause too much concern for a prospective family. But, know that if you do have issues, this book is here to help.

This book is one that any family should consider reading if they are thinking about adopting a child. The author is extremely qualified and shares many of the ideas you should ponder before adopting.

The reader is so fortunate to have an author who treats an overwhelmingly complex set of topics with such understanding and empathy. Not only will the reader have many “Aha!” moments but they will find themselves repeatedly returning to use this book as a reference.

If you read and reread this book and The Connected Child you will have a good foundation for understanding and building attachment in your adopted or foster child.

Excellent or practical and easy to follow strategies for working with kids who have suffered trauma and abuse. A must read for those adopting kiddos from a challenging background.
Even though I have not had the opportunity to put into practice the ideas and strategies included in the book, I found it very encouraging and anticipate using it as a helpful reference in the future. I highly recommend this book to adoptive parents or those considering adoption.
