Ecial needs reuires care consideration and compassionWritten by two research psychologists specializing in adoption and attachment The Connected Child will help you Build bonds of affect The framework of this book is parenting children who come from any kind of difficult past or transition adoption trauma etc The surprising humbleand highly emotional pie I ate while reading it was this Dr Purvis is kind to suggest the kind of parenting it takes to successfully parent children from hard places is just that mere kindness The fact is her parenting strategies would make every child a happier connected well adjusted childAnd if every parent practiced the kind of parenting she suggests well the world would be a better place We'd all be much effective loving parents I highly recommend this book for ANYONE dealing with emotions or behavior in kids that your current strategies just aren't fixing The best example of how I was challenged was her suggestion that sometimes to be an effective parent you have to be willing to leave that full cart of groceries Following through works but whining pleading begging and bribing don't teach anything Love this and will refer to it again and again

book The Connected Child

The Connected ChildIon and trust with your adopted The Connected PDF child Effectively deal with any learning or behavioral disorders Discipline your child with love without making him or her feel threaten I had trouble rating this book It is certainly insightful both for adoptive children and children with special needs but lacks any biblical worldview Ie they comment several times how “nature” has created us certain ways I would recommend reading this alongside books that give insight on Christian principles in parenting Even so some of the psychological explanations and practical advice for children who have endured trauma or live with special needs was certainly eye opening and helpful
