Twenty Things Adopted Kids Wish Their Adoptive Parents Knew

December 20, 2022 @ 9:00 pm - 10:30 pm EST

Twenty Things Adopted Kids Wish Their Adoptive Parents Knew will equip foster and adoptive parents to understand the thoughts and feelings children who are adopted may experience. It offers strategies and ideas to help parents be prepared for unique situations that may occur as their children grow and mature. By being prepared for various scenarios parents will be able to respond appropriately and act responsively.

After completing this training, participants will be able to:

  • Articulate the unique emotions adoption creates for adoptees and specific questions to ask to help diffuse some of the unique emotions and fears adoptees may have
  • Describe how to act responsively rather than react to the emotions and fears of children who are adopted.

ASK-VIP trainings are expressly designed to meet the needs of foster and adoptive parents. Skilled trainers who have lived experiences with fostering and adoption provide these trainings in a virtual group setting. There is 1.5 hours of ongoing, elective foster parent training credit available for Kentucky’s foster parents.

Create an account or log-in to register for this training. A reliable internet connection and a smartphone, tablet, or computer with web camera is needed to participate. If there are two adults in the same household that want to participate in this training, each person must register separately. Foster parent training credit is administered based on the duration of the meeting and each attendee’s participation. Training credit is only available if you have not participated in this training within the past twelve months.
