Moms of Adopted Kids and Teens

Does your adopted child or teen do any of the following?

  • Refuse to comply with your house rules or even simple requests?
  • Get angry and upset out of proportion to stress, difficulty, or challenges?
  • Have anxiety levels that prevent enjoyment of every day activities, school, and family time?
  • Control you and everyone in the house so you feel you’ve lost all parental authority?
  • Make unreasonable demands of your time, energy, and personal space?
  • Have difficulties at school, especially with homework, tests, and projects?
  • Leave you feeling overwhelmed and exhausted from the daily battles?
  • Exhibit frequent shut downs, meltdowns, and episodes of aggression?
  • Lie, steal, bully others, or have food issues?

Imagine how your life would change if you could help your child or teen…

  • Feel safety and security and trust you as a parent
  • Verbalize feelings and express needs instead of manipulating and controlling you
  • Decrease and eventually eliminate shutdowns, meltdowns, and rages
  • Have fun, smile, and enjoy family life on a daily basis
  • Develop resilience and strength to control impulses and make good choices
  • Find success at school and grow in social, emotional and academic success
  • Be a loving, compliant, and helpful member of the family
  • Develop coping skills and self-control strategies to overcome challenges
  • Be peaceful and calm at home so that your life is peaceful and calm again
