Therapeutic Parenting Techniques

Next up in the Adoption: Let’s Be Honest series is therapeutic parenting techniques. Sounds like some hocus pocus language, right? That is what I thought too! I was so confused about why my parenting instincts seemed to be way off the mark at the most critical moments. I didn’t normally yell, wasn’t a belitter, didn’t […]
