Parenting

Being a parent isn't easy. It requires hard work, patience, and personal sacrifice. As a parent, you'll teach your children very important concepts, like ethics, morals, and personal and religious beliefs. As an adoptive parent, you may have even more responsibilities and expectations.

The bond between a parent and a child is beautiful. But for some parent-child relationships, it can take patience and effort. Because a lot of bonding is done during infancy, adoptive parents may have a harder time initiating that bond with an older child. While it may be difficult, it isn't impossible. Some children also experience attachment or other emotional issues after placement, depending on that child's age and personal experiences. Attachment disorders don't only occur with infants and toddlers. Such issues can also plague adult adoptees. Other parenting issues you may experience are potty training, setting rules and boundaries, and making sure your children live a healthy, active life.

While there may be a lot of issues to work through, parenting is also full of joy, laughter, learning, and happiness. It is a beautiful time to watch your child grow and become an individual with a unique personality. Parenting is time to be enjoyed and remembered.
