Health Tip: Parenting Adopted Teens

(HealthDay News) — Teenagers often struggle with questions of identity. For adopted teens, the struggle may be harder than it is for their non-adopted peers.

When dealing with questions of identity, the Children Welfare Information Gateway suggests:

  1. Talk to your teen about his or her birth parents.

  2. Develop a lifebook of personal history.

  3. Connect the youth to cultural, ethnic and spiritual activities.

  4. Provide opportunities to interact with other adopted persons.

  5. Recognize similarities between you and your adopted children.
