Christine Gordon outlines a series of action charts to help parents and carers deal with specific behavioural challenges that adopted and fostered children may present. Each chart is accompanied by a description that explains why they may be acting in this way. The charts address behavioural difficulties such as sibling rivalry, accepting blame and responsibility, food issues, tantrums and more. The action charts are taken from her new book, Parenting Strategies to Help Adopted and Fostered Children with Their Behaviour.
