Re-blogging this from TAO, thank you TAO, just in case you missed it. It is my go to book on adoptees, always, and if I had to chose just one book on adoption this would be the one. It’s no youngster now but as relevant today as it was when it first came out.
When an adopted child is misbehaving or acting out and the parents ask other adoptive parents why, they are often told that biological children do this too. I understand that they mean children who are raised in their biological families misbehave or act out too. That whatever is happening is typical as the child moves through the different cognitive stages to test out boundaries and have shifts in emotions.
