What Did You Expect?: Examining Your Expectations to Meet the Needs of Your Child

Presented by Jayne Schooler.

When someone enters a new experience, they bring with them a whole set of expectations. This is true for adoptive and foster parents as well. But children in adoptive and foster families also bring with them an “invisible suitcase” full of needs and challenges. This video session looks at the role of parental expectations in meeting the needs and challenges of adopted and foster children. The session also provides parents with strategies to manage both more effectively.
