Not Just For Adoptive Parents

Over at No Hands But Ours they have a regular weekly feature of highlighting links and articles pertinent to the adoption community. I found this article to be very timely for this season of our journey with Li'l Empress.

But if I'm being completely honest, I also thought of the many young moms that I know and interact with regularly. There's some good stuff here, stuff that all of us with little ones can utilize to enhance our parenting relationships. I've spent a lot of years training my older four kids with many of these same principles; but the reminder was, as I said, timely. And very encouraging to my mission as their mom.

If you head over there, I'd love to know what you think about it. Even if you haven't adopted, let's talk about how you think some of these ideas might be helpful with the little treasures in your home?

Very good article. I've been thinking a lot about attachment lately so I appreciated the info.

I read the article and thought it was great. I would have no idea of any of those strategies!!! I can see that it is a good starting point for finding information.

That is a good article. And you're right, not just for adoptive parents. There is wisdom there for every mom.

Thanks!
