Parenting the Internationally Adopted Child

By: Patty Cogen

A review by Delana H. Stewart

This is a fantastic book that I highly recommend to anyone considering international adoption.  Even those who have already adopted abroad would Patty Cogen, Parenting Internationallyfind this extremely helpful (even if you’ve had your child for 10 years already).  It is a great resource from your first hours together, all the way through the teen years.  The sections break down as follows: Understanding your child’s behavior and misbehavior, Key parenting strategies, and As your child grows up (from 3-5, 6-9, 10-12, and teen years).  It is published by the Harvard Common Press and is available from new and used starting at $6.50.
