Talking to Your Child About Adoption: The Do's and Don'ts - Omaha

Monday, March 12, 2018
11:30 am1:00 pm

with Christine Bowlby, LMHP, RPT

Many parents have reservations when it comes to talking to their children about adoption. They are unsure what age to begin talking about adoption, what information is appropriate to share, and how to answer their child’s difficult questions. Topics that arise may be uncomfortable and parents sometimes fear they may say the wrong thing and somehow hurt their child. Whether a child was adopted as an infant or as an older child or adolescent, adoption is a part of the child and a part of the family. Adoption impacts how the adopted person views the world, how the world views them, their sense of self, and current and future intimate relationships. Learn what the history of adoption has taught us through honesty and openness and help your child build a foundation for a strong adoption identity.
