In On It: What adoptive parents want you to know about adoption
In On It: What adoptive parents want you to know about adoption is a great book for anyone that says to themselves or others, “I wish my family understood better…XYZ about fostering/adoption.”
Beyond Consequences is the parent’s guide to taking a love based approach to helping your kiddo that struggles with behavior regulation or has come from hard places. This book has helped us move past the daily fights of parenting to a place of greater peace in our home!
Help for Billy
Help for Billy is a wonderful book for anyone that is an educator for a kiddo that struggles with behavior regulation or has come from hard places. We have bought multiple copies of this book for all our kiddos teachers, after care workers, summer day camp workers, and have read the book ourselves as well!
TBRI- Trust-Based Relational Intervention- YouTube videos
A few of the most highly recommended videos about parenting/foster care
Instant Family- This movie follows a married couple as they journey down the foster care journey. Instant Family does a fantastic job of showing the wide range of emotions that foster parents experience, the highs, and lows of fostering, as well as extended family reactions. This is one families story, however many families feel that they connect to at least a few points of the movie. Five stars!
TiLT Parenting – This podcast has been instrumental in our navigating the world with a child with ADHD and other processing disorders. All the people that speak come across as approachable and informative and I have walked away with at least one new piece of information in every episode I have listened to.
