It is important for an adopted child to learn about and deal with their stories. Sometimes a parent was abusive or neglectful or addicted or even died. Sometimes a parent had a mental illness or was in prison. Sometimes adopted children are not able to find out the information because it is not available. Many teens want to know what their birth parents looked like. Many want to know if their birth mother and birth father cared about one another or were they an accident? It is crucial that adoptive parents share this important information with their adopted teens or else they risk having the child find out anyway and feeling angry, betrayed or even worse. By the time a child is an adolescent they should know all of the specifics surrounding their adoption that can be shared.
Boys and Girls need to know their Adoption Story
Children need to know their adoption story. They need to learn that they were not in any way the cause or the reason for their parents giving them up. Some questions that teens wonder: Why did they give me away? Was there something wrong with me? Did they give me away because they did drugs or abused me? What does that say about me? Why couldn't they work things out and taken care of me? This may lead to further issues of feeling rejected and unlovable.
Residential Treatment Centers are designed to provide your child with a therapeutic living environment to help them develop skills to deal with emotional, psychological and behavioral disorders. They offer medication management, therapeutic treatment and appropriate schooling for children with severe mental and emotional issues. On-site psychiatric services are also provided.
